        Memoirs of the Secret Societies of the South of Italy, particularly the Carbonari.

      - London, John Murray 1821. Octavo contemporary calf (front hinge neatly repaired); xvi,235pp and 12 lithographs by Hullmandel, seven folding including a charming large folding view of a meeting. A few spots, a nice fresh copy with half title. First edition; it was written in French, a second language, with the view of being translated and published in London. The attribution to Giuseppe Bertoldi is unlikely as far as I can see; the Risorgimento poet was barely born when this appeared. German librarians confidently ascribe the book to Jakob Ludwig Salomon Bartholdy - the Prussian Consul-General in Rome - and other librarians have attributed it to a Bertoldi without forename.

By the time he retired in 1830, 56 years later at the age of 80, he laid the foundations of the actuarial profession - in fact the term 'actuarial' became attached to the profession because of his title.

        Oeuvres de Le Sage

      Paris - Antoine Augustin Renouard, 1821. Paris - Antoine Augustin Renouard, 1821 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce collection of work from French novelist and playwright, Alain-Ren Lesage. In French. Volume one contains Le Diable Boiteux, volume two contains thefirst part to Gil Blas, volume three contains the second part of Gil Blas, volume four holds Chevalier de Beauchene, volume five contains Guzman D'Alfarache, volume six holds Bachelier de Salamanque, volume seven contains Estevanille Gonzalez, volume eight containsRoland L'Amoureux, with volume nine holding Don Quichotte, volume ten contains the second part to Don Quichotte, volume eleven contains a collection of Lesage's plays, as does volume twelve. Lesage is best known for his comic novel Le Diable boiteux, his comedy Turcaret, and his picaresque novel Gil Blas, which are all present within this collection. Lesage began by translating plays chiefly from Francisco de Rojas Zorrilla and Lope de Vega. Le Tratre puni and Le Point d'honneur from the former and Don Flix de Mendoce from the latter were acted or published in the first two or three years of the 18th century. In 1704, he translated the continuation of Don Quixote by Alonso Fernndez de Avellaneda, and soon afterwards adapted a play from Pedro Caldern de la Barca, Don Csar Ursin, which was successful at court and damned in the city. Lesage was, however, nearly forty before he obtained decided success. In 1707, his farce, Crispin rival de son matre, was well received, and Le Diable boiteux was published and ran to several editions. Lesage altered and improved this play in 1725, giving it its present form. He thereupon altered it into Turcaret, considered his theatrical masterpiece. Edited by Pierre Hyacinthe Audiffret. Whitehead's private library bookplates to the front pastedown of every volume. Complete in twelve volumes. Condition: All volumes bound in half calf with marbled boards.

Elliott was a member of one of the most prominent families in South Carolina. After his graduation from Yale in 1791, he served as a legislator and ran the state bank, but devoted much of his time to his botanical pursuits. This work was originally published in thirteen parts, the first appearing in 1816, which accounts for the eccentric pagination of the first volume. A rare and significant work of American natural history. TAXONOMIC LITERATURE 1659. MEISEL III:388. DE RENNE, p.375. SABIN 22276. DAB VI, p.99.

Mild surfaces scuffing to spines and rubbing to corners of both volumes, preliminaries and first couple pages of text in first volume moderately grubby, else text and plates quite clean; second volume with mends to corner tips of title page and first few pages, occasional mends elsewhere, some leaves darkened, overall a very good set. 2 volumes, later full navy-blue morocco by Riviere & Son, spines gilt, gilt borders on boards, gilt inner dentelles, top edges gilt, others untrimmed.

All illustrations with contemporary handcoloring. 1 extra plate in each volume that is not included in the list of plates. As noted in Tooley, this is a bibliographically complex publication ". . . full of contrarities and difficulties for the bibliographer . . ." This set with Tooley&#39;s second issue points (correct imprints, printer&#39;s slugs, and title page dates, with identified variations in plate captions for a couple plates in both volumes). Additionally, Volume II here has frontispiece dated 1824 - apparently supplied from that printing, and an added leaf placed after ix (Contents & Directions to the Binder, verso blank) advertising "Real Life in Ireland", with announcement headed "A Word to the Wise" on recto and facsimile title page of the 1822 3rd edition of the title on verso. Regarding the extra plates ("St. George&#39;s Day, Presentation at the Levee" and "Tom and Bob Catching a Charley Napping") Tooley says "I have seen them in all issues." Tooley 198. Not a parody of Egan&#39;s "Life in London" but an inspired imitation by an author who yet remains unknown. The Cambridge History of English and American Literature says: "Out of the sixty-five imitations of (Life in London) which Egan stated that he had reckoned, the most important was Real Life in London, ..., which was published in sixpenny numbers in 1821, with excellent illustrations by Heath, Alken, Dighton, Rowlandson and others. Real Life in London is a pleasanter book than its prototype. Some have held that Egan wrote it; but the author had a purer style, a cleaner mind and a wider knowledge of London than Egan. The book shows many more sides of London life than his . . .

Exhibiting a Real Picture of Characters, Manners, &c. in High and Low Life, in Dublin and Various Parts of Ireland. Embellished with Humorous Coloured Engravings , From Original Designs by the most eminent Artists. By a Real Paddy. London: Jones and Co. and J.J. Marks, 1821. First edition. Tall octavo (8 3/4 x 5 11/16 in; 226 x 142 mm). vii, [1, blank], 6-296 pp. Frontispiece and eighteen hand-colored plates by and after William Heath, Henry Alken, and others. Original quarter green cloth over blue paper boards with printed spine label, rebacked with original backstrip laid down. Some rubbing and light soiling to boards, spine label a little chipped, minor soiling to plate margins not affecting image. An excellent copy of a scarcely seen book."Though not so good it is more rare than [Egan&#39;s] Life in London" (Tooley). The last copy to come to auction was, according to ABPC, was thirty-four years ago in 1970."Real Life in Ireland was initially shunned by educated readers and even a quick glance at the language and misdeeds of the central characters, Brian Boru and Sir Shawn O&#39;Doherty, reveal that such a publication may once have been able to cause and give offence. However, Real Life in Ireland is more akin to the works of Flann O&#39;Brien and although written nearly 200 years ago is very readable and very funny."Opening with the discharge of Shawn O&#39;Dogherty from college in Dublin with a small fortune to spend, he is joined from the country by his friend Brian Boru, who along the way is regaled by the stories of Peg O&#39;Shambles, a one-time cockle picker from Ringsend in Dublin, who has fallen on hard times due to her alcoholic husband&#39;s misdeeds. Accompanied by many humorous cartoons of Brian Boru&#39;s adventures, the characters travel from Belfast to make merry in Dublin. While the characters in Real Life in Ireland might be fictitious the places, events and the Hiberno-Irish featured throughout are not. Although a comparison with James Joyce&#39;s travels through Dublin is perhaps hardly appropriate, Real Life in Ireland provides a clear account of Dublin and its inhabitants, as well as the major sights and attractions of its suburbs. Perhaps unintentionally, Real Life in Ireland has left an account of the &#39;real&#39; trials and tribulations of Ireland in the 1820s. For example, the new harbour at Dalkey is rightly criticised as a waste of money and time the long awaited visit of George IV lamented, but not much regretted.""All-in-all...Real Life in Ireland make[s] for a highly entertaining and extremely funny read and has much to recommend it to a modern readership that might be unfamiliar with its kind" (Eneclann).Abbey, Life 282.

Der Aufenthalt in Frankreich war jedoch nicht von Dauer, denn er erhielt noch im selben Jahr ein Reisestipendium der Düsseldorfer Akademie, das ihm einen dreijährigen Aufenthalt in Italien ermöglichte. Dort kopierte er im Auftrage der Akademie in S. Maria dei Frari in Venedig Tizians 'Himmelfahrt Mariae'. Später ging er nach Florenz und kam schließlich am 22. Dezember 1847 in Rom an, wo er bis zum 11. April 1849 ständiges Quartier bezog. Der junge Niessen fand in der Stadt und in ihrer Umgebung, der Campagna di Roma, seine Motive und so könnte man in unserem Blatt mit der Darstellung eines Wasserfalls eine Ansicht der Kaskaden bei Tivoli erahnen. Mit fließendem Duktus, der den einzelnen Strich als autonomes Gestaltungselement anerkennt, umschreibt der Zeichner die bergige Landschaft unter einem locker bewölkten Himmel. Auf einer dunklen Felswand ergießt sich der sprudelnde Katarakt in die Tiefe, in das dunkle Blau des verschatteten Wassers in der Schlucht. Das Gewässer scheint von innen heraus in der Tiefe zu glühen und verleiht dem rötlichen Gestein leuchtend violette Reflexe. Im Mittelgrund schließt der düstere Hang die Schlucht zum lichteren Hintergrund ab. Rechts und links erheben sich die geschwungenen Klippen von deren grünen Rücken sanfte Nebelschwaden hell den Wiesen und Bäumen entsteigen. Sie führen unseren Blick nach hinten in eine fruchtbare Berglandschaft im Zwielicht der Dämmerung. Die außergewöhnliche Farbigkeit der Zeichnung mag als Widerhall der koloristisch orientierten Kunst seiner Lehrzeit in Düsseldorf gelesen werden. Sie wirkt jedoch durch das Schattenspiel und die zu lumineszieren scheinenden Areale derart übersteigert, dass sie der Szene einen beinahe surrealen Charakter verleiht. Die zu zerfließen scheinenden Formen der zerklüfteten Gegend verstärken diesen unwirklichen Ausdruck. Niessen erdichtet uns hier die traumgleiche Szenerie einer in das Licht der blauen Stunde getauchten italienischen Landschaft, wo die Grenzen zwischen Träumen und Wachen verschwimmen. Später soll diese Neigung zur Poesie ihren Ausdruck auch in seinen Sonetten finden, die er zur Einfühlung in die Werke im von ihm geleiteten Wallraf-Richartz-Museum verfasst hatte.

        A VISIT TO NORTH AMERICA AND THE ENGLISH SETTLEMENTS IN ILLINOIS, WITH A WINTER RESIDENCE AT PHILADELPHIA; SOLELY TO ASCERTAIN THE ACTUAL PROSPECTS OF THE EMIGRATING AGRICULTURALIST, MECHANIC, AND COMMERCIAL SPECULATOR

      London: J. Drury, 1821.. London: J. Drury, 1821.. xii,224pp. plus errata slip and fourteen plates (including frontispiece). Contemporary three quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, neatly rebacked, original spine laid down. Early ownership signature on front free endpaper. Bookplate removed from front pastedown, text foxed. Good. The author made a western tour in 1820. He was not impressed by what he saw and reports unfavorably on the Illinois country. American manners as usual affronted the British; on thanking a stableman he was told, "you need not be so full in your thanks for I mean to charge you for it!" Welby drew numerous sketches during his trip, and fourteen are reproduced here. They are handsome, and some of the earliest good views of the western country. They include "Ferry at Maysville, Ohio"; "Frankfort, Kentucky"; "The Church at Harmony" (his visit to New Harmony was when Rapp still ran the place); "Bridge at Zanesville, Ohio"; and others. Together, they represent one of the best early suites of views of Illinois. Along with Illinois there are descriptions of Ohio, Virginia, Indiana, and Kentucky. A work now rare. BUCK 150. HOWES W229.

Erste Ausgabe der zweiten wichtigen Arbeit über die Fraunhoferschen Linien. - In der vorliegenden Abhandlung beschreibt Fraunhofer die Beugungserscheinungen des Lichtes an einem Gitter und trägt damit wesentlich zur Bestätigung der Undulationstheorie bei. Die Wellenlängen der so erhaltenen Spektrallinien kann er mit Hilfe der von ihm entdeckten dunklen Linien sehr genau bestimmen. Erst durch diese Arbeit findet die Entdeckung der nach ihm benannten Linien die nötige Beachtung in der Fachwelt.

As a French view of their island neighbours it presents an interesting selection of characters: a baker, sailor, shrimp-seller, newsboy, dustman, May Day reveller, an artillery officer, judge, beefeater, alderman and the Lord Mayor of London. Clearly the notion of Angleterre stretches to the wider Britannic nation with the inclusion of a Welsh peasant, a Scots soldier and a highlander. The approximate date of publication may be deduced from a reference on p. 9 to British census of 1821. Eyriès produced similar volumes on the costumes of Austria, China, Russia, Spain, Switzerland and Turkey. Though each was issued separately over the course of several years, they were evidently sometimes combined to form the series Costumes" (COPAC).Colas 1013. Brunet II, col. 1142.

      Berlin, Nicolai, 1821.. . Traditionsreicher Berliner Stadtführer aus der Feder des Prorektors der Köllnischen Stadtschule in der erweiterten und überarbeiteten Fassung und mit den reizenden Ansichten von F. A. Calau. Das Werk wurde auch ohne Tafeln verkauft. Vorläufer war Friedrich Nicolais 'Beschreibung der königl. Residenzstädte Berlin und Potsdam', die seit 1769 erschien und wegweisend für die Gattung der Stadtbeschreibungen wurde. Für die erste Ausgabe der Schmidt'schen Beschreibung hatte Nicolai 1793 das Vorwort verfasst. Der Reiz des Buches wird erhöht durch die 15 Ansichten, die vom damaligen Berliner Meister der kleinformatigen Stadtvedute F. A. Calau stammen. Dieser war für seine präzisen Architekturzeichnungen und seine malerisch die Biedermeierzeit spiegelnde Figurenstaffage berühmt. Der Faltplan Berlins liegt in der Neubearbeitung Duchsteins aus dem Jahre 1811 vor. - Gutes Exemplar. - Vgl. Berlin-Bibl. S. 57 (nur 1793 und 1836) und Engelmann 340 (Ausgabe 1836).
