        Journal of Sentimental Travels in the Southern Provinces of France, Shortly Before the Revolution

      R. Ackermann 1821 - This is the second state of the first edition, 291 numbered pages, plus directions to the printer, published by Ackermann in 1821, with 17 plates specified on the title page, but with 18 in the book, as correctly noted in the printer's directions. The cover (app. 9.5" x 6"), dark blue leather with gilt borders and decorations, is good overall, but with the title label missing, and some fade to the gilt on the spine, which is straight, and securely attached to the inside. There are a number of surface scuffs, but no notable stains or tears. The marbled inside cover spreads are unfaded and clean. There is a bookplate "sur esperance" to the front inside cover. This is the only attachment. The only writing is a small R in a larger C, to the upper outside corner of the first blank page. My guess is that this is a binder's mark. All 18 color plates are in excellent condition, with no notable fade. There is color offset to the adjacent text pages. These are almost the only stains to the pages. I've found a few spot stains and smudges, but the page faces are exceptionally clean, with all text as new, and with the marbled edges clean and unfaded. There are a number of corner creases, but these aren't sharp. There are no page tears. The binding is tight, with no loose or missing pages. The accompanying photos are accurate reflections of the book conditions. I have several other photos, and would be glad to email them to anyone interested in buying the book. International buyers should be aware that this would be sent priority express mail, fully insured, and declared for its full value, with a shipping charge of $100.00. Local taxes (VAT or the like) should be taken into account. US shipping would be by priority express insured, with a shipping charge of $25.00. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Treatment of Gravel, Calculus, and other Diseases with a Deeranged Operation of the Urinary Organs.

      . London : Printed for Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, Paternoster Row., 1821, 8°, VIII, 227, (3) pp., with 8 hand-coloured examples of sedinments on one text leaf, Halbleinenband der Zeit; Rücken erneuert; feines unbeschnittenes Exemplar.. Erste Ausgabe! - William Prout (1785-1850), berühmter Arzt und Chemiker, beschäftigte sich namentlich mit der organischen Chemie und hielt von 1813 an in seinem Hause Vorlesungen, zu deren Besuchern auch Astley Cooper gehörte. Sein zuerst 1821 erschienenes Werk "Inquiry into the nature and treatment of gravel, calculus and other diseases of the urinary organs" verschaffte ihm großen Ruf. - Prout war einer der ersten, die Licht in viele dunkle Punkte des animalischen Lebens brachten; er gab zuerst eine klare Idee über die Zusammenstellung des Urins, die Verschiedenheiten desselben bei verschiedenen Thieren, die Steinbildung, und förderte gleichzeitig die Kenntniss der Verdauung durch den Nachweis, das der Magen im normalen Zustand stets freie Salzsäure enthält. cit. nach Hirsch IV, p.632f. - - Prout, "whose name in chemistry is particularly associated with his hypothesis that all atomic weights are a multiple of the atomic weight of hydrogen". J. Büttner & C. Habrich, Roots of Clinical Chemistry, p.84 - - "In 1815, Vogel published his researches on the reduction of metallic salts by sugar, and this work was carried further by William Prout who proved that urinary sugar differed from cane sugar." Murphy, p.149 - - Prout is also remembered, however, for his researches into physical chemistry. In 1815, based on the tables of atomic weights available at the time, he anonymously hypothesized that the atomic weight of every element is an integer multiple of that of hydrogen, suggesting that the hydrogen atom is the only truly fundamental particle (which he called protyle, and that the atoms of the other elements are made of groupings of various numbers of hydrogen atoms. While Prout's hypothesis was not borne out by later more-accurate measurements of atomic weights, it was a sufficiently fundamental insight into the structure of the atom that in 1920, Ernest Rutherford chose the name of the newly discovered proton to, among other reasons, give credit to Prout. - cf.

        Memoir of Jemima Wilkinson, A Preacheress of the Eighteenth [18th] Century ~ Containing an Authentic Narrative of Her Life.

      S.P. Hull, Geneva 1821 - 12mo, 206pp., Spine is faded. Gilt lettered leather cover. Rebound at some point by a binder from Bath, NY. New endpapers. This is the original 1821 printing. Hinges cracked inside, but strong. Jemima Wilkinson, who in 1790 founded the religious community of Jerusalem in western New York was known for her visions, religious dreams, and prophesying. During the course of a fever, she fell into a prolonged trance from which she emerged with the conviction that she had died. She believed that her original soul and body was now inhabited by the `Spirit of Life' which came from God "to warn a lost and guilty, gossiping, dying World to flee from the wrath to come." One of her followers, Sarah Richards also had visions. She would swoon as she went into vision and lie "motionless and apparently lifeless" for a while. Afterwards, she would rise up to deliver her message. Curiously enough, less than 30 miles away, Joseph Smith had the revelations that founded the Mormon religion several years after Wilkinson. William Miller, another Upstate New York farmer, also came from this region and began the Seventh Day Adventists. New York itself is known as the "burned over district" because so many revivalist preachers come from this same area. Howes H-761 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

It is one of the Autonomous regions of Portugal, with Madeira Island and Porto Santo Island being the only inhabited islands. Although technically located in the African Plate, some 650 km (360 mi) off the North African coast, Madeira belongs ethnically, culturally and politically to Europe, some 955 km (583 mi) from the European mainland. Madeira was discovered by Portuguese sailors some time between 1418 and 1420. The archipelago is considered to be the first discovery of the exploratory period initiated by Henry the Navigator of Portugal. It is a popular year-round resort, noted for its Madeira wine, flowers, and embroidery artisans, as well as its New Year's Eve celebrations that feature a spectacular fireworks show, which is the largest in the world according to the Guinness World Records.

        Botrychium Lunaria; Ophioglossum vulgatum; O. lustianicum, Pl. LI (Moonwort, Southern adderstongue, The dwarf adders tongue)

      Thomas Moore (1821-1887) was an English gardener and botanist and studied ferns and fern allies from the British Isles. He served at curator of the Society of the Apothecaries Garden from 1848 to 1887 and in 1855 published ?The Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland.?This pressed nature print from ?The Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland,? titled, Botrychium Lunaria; Ophioglossum vulgatum; O. lustianicum, Pl. LI, measures 21.75? x 14.75? and is in excellent condition. The ferns pressed on this engraving are commonly known as Moonwort, Southern adderstongue and dwarf adders tongue. The green coloring of these pressed ferns are vibrant and show the frond and leaf details and the root systems. From the early fifteenth century onwards experiments with making prints from pressed leaves and flowers were conducted. The first ventures into this technique were relatively simple with the specimen inked and paper laid upon it. Pressure was then applied by hand to gain an impression.This rather crude method was advanced and perfected during the nineteenth century by the Imperial Printing Office in Vienna . Plants were now passed under pressure between a lead and a steel plate and an electrotype made, on the lead plate, from the impression. It was this innovative technique that Thomas Moore chose for the creation of the plates in his splendid book, ?Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland ?. The plates were produced for Moore by Henry Bradbury and are the finest example of nature-printing available. Thomas Moore?s book heralded a craze for ferns or ?pteridomania? during the nineteenth century perhaps because of the exquisite delicacy of the images projected. In 1907, the Thomas Moore Fernery was built on the site of his original garden.

        Notes on the Cape of Good Hope made during an excursion in that colony in the year 1820.

      John Murray, London 1821 - Contemporary brown tree calf, rebacked with new leather on spine and corners, flat, gilt ruled spine, divided in five compartments with a gilt title on a red label in the second compartment, 8vo., pp. iv, 207. Some sporadic light foxing and minor wear to the corners. On one page a remark has been written in old pen, after which it has been crossed out in the same pen. The bookplate of the Africana collector Lionel. B. Goldschmidt on first free endpaper. New endpapers. Mendelssohn, listing this book under its title as the author then still was unknown, states: "The anonymous author evidently did not remain long in the Cape, but he gives an interesting account of the state of the country at the time of his visit. He remarks on the opposition of the 'Dutch Boers' to the settlement of the Cape by Europeans, and observes, 'With still greater animosity and alarm do they contemplate the extensive plan of colonisation now about to be carried out by the British Government.' Much is related concerning the habits of the Dutch, whose manners, it is stated, 'are prepossessing to travellers', although in other respects their habits are severely criticised. Some parts of the country are recommended to settlers who possess substantial sums of money with which to commence farming, and the Knysna district, in particular is well spoken of for this purpose. . By no means a pleasing picture is drawn of the morals of the inhabitants, and the writer was certainly not enthusiastic as to the advantages of the Cape." The last part of the book deals with the author's visit to St. Helena, where he finds it impossible to hear any news about Napoleon, there imprisoned at that time, while he writes about the cost of living on the island: "Living is so enormously expensive that none who have a ship, to resort to, think of remaining on shore." At first the book was attributed to Barrow (without substantial evidence), but in 1943 it was Alfred Gordon-Brown who attributed this book to Blount. An attractive copy of a hard to find book.

        Théorie des machines simples, en ayant égard au frottement de leurs parties et à la roideur de cordages. Nouvelle édition.

      Paris, Bachelier. 1821 - In- 4°, m. pergamena. (8), 368 pp. e 10 tavole incise in rame ripiegate f.t. Bell' esemplare intonso con chiarissime, insignificanti velature di umidità in alcune pagine e un rinforzo nel margine bianco dell' ultima tavola. E' questa l' edizione più completa e rara delle memorie del Coulomb sulla meccanica publicate dal 1773 al 1790 in vari periodici scientifici. L' autore, famoso fisico e ingegnere militare, partecipò a un concorso bandito dall' Académie des sciences di Parigi nel 1781 e lo vinse con una memoria divenuta classica, dal titolo Théorie des machines simples. Essa è divisa in due parti: la prima è dedicata all' attrito radente, al distacco e dinamico; la seconda alla rigidità delle funi. Dagli esperimenti fatti e la sucessiva elaborazione matematica dei risultati, Coulomb poteva enunciare le leggi sull' attrito, ritenute valide ancor oggi. La publicazione della memoria gli fruttò l' amissione (1784) all' Académie des Sciences di Parigi. Riprese lo studio della torsione elastica dei fili con un dispositivo sperimentale di sua invenzione e stabilì le relative leggi ancora attuali. "The collection of Coulomb's mechanics memoires is rather rare" (D.S.B., III, pp. 439-47). Poggendorff, I, 487-88. Darmstaedter, pp.219, 228, 240, 266.

Association copy: Bookplate to front pastedown of John Nolty, a New York city printer and president of the Evening-Post, as well as a renowned book collector and bibliophile (See 'John Nolte, 1851-1930, Book Lover, Printer'). Richard Bridgens was an artist, sculptor, designer and architect. He is perhaps best remembered for his pictures of West Indian scenery carried out after he closed his Birmingham architectural practice in 1825 and moved to Trinidad, where his wife had inherited a sugar plantation. The text in this volume is by English writer and physician John William Polidori (1795-1821), whose most successful work was the 1819 short story, The Vampyre, the first published modern vampire story.

        Map of the County of Kent, from an actual Survey made in the Years 1819 & 1820. By C. Greenwood. To the Nobility, Clergy and Gentry, of Kent, This Map of the County Is most respectfully Dedicated by the Proprietors.

      Published for the Proprietors, by G. Pringle Junior, No.70 Queen Street, Cheapside, July 19th, 1821., London, - Large engraved map, dissected and mounted on linen, fine original full-wash colour, edged in blue silk, housed in original diced calf pull-off slipcase, gilt ruled, lettered in gilt to spine, rubbed. A fine example of Greenwood's large-scale map of Kent.The maps by Christopher and John Greenwood set new standards for large-scale surveys. Although they were unsuccessful in their stated aim to map all the counties of England and Wales it is probably no coincidence that of the ones they missed, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Herefordshire, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Oxfordshire, all except Cambridgeshire were mapped by Andrew Bryant in a similar style and at the same period. From a technical point of view the Greenwoods' productions exceeded the high standards set in the previous century though without the decoration and charming title-pieces that typified large scale maps of that period.The Greenwoods started in 1817 with Lancashire and Yorkshire and by 1831 they had covered 34 counties. Their maps were masterpieces of surveying and engraving techniques, and in view of the speed at which they were completed, their accuracy is remarkable. They mark the boundaries of the counties, hundreds and parishes, churches and chapels, castles and quarries, farmhaouses and gentlemen's seats, heaths and common land, woods, parliamentary representatives and distances between towns. The price of 3 guineas each compares with the the first edition Ordnance Survey sheets of 7s 6d, though the latter did not relate to complete counties.

        Original Photograph

      Sixteenth president of the U.S. Pioneering photographer ALEXANDER GARDNER (1821-82) photographed Lincoln on several occasions, and some of his portraits are among the best known of Lincoln poses. Offered here is an original print by pioneering 20th century photography historian/collector FREDERICK HILL MESERVE (1865-1962). Known as "America's first great photograph collector," Meserve saved countless original Brady and other negatives from destruction and assigned numbers to Lincoln photographs ("Meserve numbers") still used today. Heavy stock 8" X 10", n.p., n.y. [ca. 1940s]. Very good. Slightest bit of quite minor edgewear. Well-known studio portrait depicting President Lincoln seated cross-legged and gazing at the viewer, left hand holding an open newspaper and right hand holding his glasses. On the verso, near the bottom, Meserve boldly writes in pencil (as was his habit) in his distinctive hand: "Abraham Lincoln / (Meserve No. 54) / By Gardner Aug. 9, 1863." The immediacy of any Meserve print is startling, for we've grown accustomed to seeing later generation reproductions of this portrait in books and other forms. Whether this print was made off the original negative is not clear -- often Meserve would state so in his pencilled description, but not consistently. A superb, rare piece printed by the preeminent photography historian of the 20th century.

NICHOLSON'S; IN WHICH THE PRINCIPLES OF THE SCIENCE ARE INVESTIGATED ANEW, AND ITS APPLICATION TO THE PHENOMENA OF NATURE, MEDICINE, MINERALOGY, AGRICULTURE, AND MANUFACTURES, DETAILED. With an introductory dissertation; containing instructions for converting the alphabetical arrangement into a systematic order of study. London: Printed for Thomas & George Underwood, et al., 1821. First edition. Fifteen engraved plates (numbered 1-14), some folding, showing apparatus and chemical tables. Octavo, untrimmed. xix,[1],[752] pp. Text printed in double columns. Disbound: original paper boards are present but lacking the backstrip; and, the bookblock is split in several places. Ex-library; nineteenth-century bookplate on front pastedown and a small blind-stamped seal on the t.p., and no other marks. Very light dust-soiling to a couple of pages, and scant foxing to frontisp. and t.p., else very clean within. A scarce title, it is offered as is. Andrew Ure (b. Scotland, 1878; d. England, 1857), was a pioneer in teaching chemistry to artisans. His interest in the application of science to the arts and industry bore fruit in his Dictionary of Science. The work was originally undertaken at the request of the publishers as a revision of William Nicholson's Dictionary of Chemistry, but Ure said that so much of the latter was obsolete that the work had to be rewritten.

Esemplare assai fresco, in eccellenti condizioni di conservazione. Il "Principe Perfecto y Ministros Ajustados. Documentos politicos y morales.
