        Gedenkurkunde zum Österreichischen Sängerfest 1880 - Dank an den Chormeister. Gedenkurkunde, dat. 25. April 1880. An einen nicht genannten Chormeister [Franz Mair vom Wiener Schubertbund]. "Verehrter Herr Chormeister! Dreitausend Männer danken Ihnen durch uns. Wie danken Ihnen für all? die Müh? und Sorgfalt." Signiert vom "Fünfer-Comité der Gesangvereine Wiens und Umgebung".

      - Franz Mair (1821-1893) war Komponist und Gründer sowie Chormeister des Wiener Schubertbundes. Von 1867 bis 1874 sowie von 1879 bis 1890 war er Bundeschormeister des N.Ö. Sängerbundes. - Das Österreichische Sängerfest vom April 1880 endete in einem feierlichen Festzug sowie einer Kaiserhuldigung in der Wiener Hofburg. Die Neue Freie Presse beschreibt den in der Urkunde erwähnten Moment des kaiserlichen Dankes an den Dirigenten wie folgt: "Nachdem die Sänger entsprechend postiert worden waren, begab sich Chormeister Franz Mair an das Dirigentenpult, welches in der Mitte eines von den Sängern gebildeten großen Kreises gegenüber dem Franzens-Monument errichtet war, und nun wurde von sämtlichen 2800 Sängern die Festhymne `Sängergruß`, deren Text Ferdinand von Saar gedichtet hatte, abgesungen. [.] Die Sänger, welche entblößten Hauptes ihre Ovation gebracht hatten, setzten auf besonderen Wunsch des Kaisers mit Rücksicht auf die glühenden Sonnenstrahlen ihre Hüte wieder auf. Auf eine Einladung des Kaisers begab sich das Festcomite in die kaiserlichen Appartements, und der Kaiser wiederholte demselben noch einmal seinen Dank für die gelungene Production. Der Monarch sagte zum Chormeister Mair: `Ich bin angenehm überrascht, daß eine so präcise Aufführung bei einer so imposanten Sängerzahl möglich war`." (NFP 26. 4. 1880, S. 3). Lit.: ÖBL 5 (1972); ÖML S. 1343. 2 S. Pergamenturkunde in Zierschrift, Überschrift und Initiale goldfarben gehöht, 28,4 x 38,1 cm, in originaler weinroter Samtmappe mit Zierprägung (Buchbinder: A.

        Porcus troianus o sia la porchetta. Cicalata ne le nozze di messer Carlo Ridolfi veronese con madonna Rosa Spina riminese

      Bologna: Nobili, 1821 8vo (209x144 mm); contemporary wrappers (small losses to the spine); (2), XVI, 134, (2 blank) pp. A nice copy. Uncut.SECOND AUGMENTED EDITION. Before the title-page is a Notice (not described in ICCU) which mentions the first edition printed in Rimini in 1813. The name of the author is given only under the form of an anagram, Giri di Luna, in the dedication at p. III.This work by the canon from Savignano Luigi Nardi, though written as a "cicalata" (entertaining ludic poem) for the marriage of Carlo Ridolfi from Verona to Madonna Rosa Spina from Rimini, represents a real treatise on the history and art of making the porchetta (roast pork). According to Nardi, the only true porchetta is that traditionally made in Romagna, the author's region, which has nothing to do with that produced in Naples or Bologna. Nardi then refers that in the ancient Rome cuisine with "porcus troianus" was meant a pork stuffed with various meats, which once on the table was opened, often in a spectacular way, to release the precious content, as in the famous Homeric episode of the Trojan horse (cf. L. Bartolotti, La porchetta, sapori di storia e di tradizione, in: "Porcus troianus: la storia della porchetta in un trattato dell'Ottocento", facsimile reprint of the present edition, Rimini, 2006).Catalogo unico, IT\ICCU\SBLE\006492; B.I.N.G., 1338; Westbury, p. 158.

        Du Système industriel.

      A Paris, chez Antoine-Augustin Renouard 1821 - in-8, [4]-XX-311 pp., broché, couv. d'attente de papier violine moucheté. La structure des écrits de Saint-Simon a toujours été complexe ; et ce volume du Système industriel n'échappe pas à la règle. Il s'agit de la première édition sous forme de livre, donnée collectivement à 12 pièces et pamphlets, qui avaient fait l'objet d'impressions séparées après le procès de l'auteur, entre juin 1820 et janvier 1821. Cet ouvrage forme à son tour la première partie seulement d'un ensemble, car elle fut complétée l'année suivante, en 1822, par un second volume in-8 de 220 pp., reprenant le contenu de 7 brochures également publiées séparément, mais d'une diffusion extrêmement confidentielle. Moins connue que son Catéchisme, où se lit la doctrine saint-simonienne dans son état de (presque-) achèvement, l'?uvre marque un moment important dans la pensée du maître : la partie intitulée "Considérations sur les mesures à prendre pour terminer la Révolution" articule puissamment question politique (celle qui se posa aux révolutionnaires dès la Constituante, et devait hâter tout le XIXe siècle : comment "terminer" la Révolution ?), question économique et question sociale, ces dernières encore dans les limbes des penseurs, mais que l'esprit visionnaire de l'auteur anticipait comme les grands enjeux du nouveau siècle. Ex-dono manuscrit de l'auteur à Monsieur Jobez. Fournel, pp. 26-27. Gerits, Additions to Jean Walch, 382. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        De la colonie de Frederiks-Oord... With 2 lithographic plates

      Johannes VAN DEN BOSCH, Count; Karel Lodewijk VAN KEVERBERG VAN KESSEL (Charles-Louis-Guillaume-Joseph KEVERBERG DE KESSEL, Baron de): De la colonie de Frederiks-Oord et des moyens de subvenir aux besoins de l'indigence par les défrichement des terres vagues et incultes. [From the colony of Frederiks-Oord and the means of providing maintencance of the poor by the reclamation of fallow and uncultivated land]. With 2 lithographic plates. Gand [Gent]: J.-N. Houdin 1821. In-8°. Pages [I-V], VI-IXXII (i.e. LXXII)], [2 (capiton leaf)], [1], 2-110, [2 (errata leaf); 2 lithographic plates. Contemporary thread stiched brochure with dark brown cover paper. First and only contemporary description of the Netherland's oldest colony of benevolence, enriched by two lithographic plates, the one showing a ground plot and view of a colonist's house, the other a panorama of the main street of this facility. Preceded 1st edition of this important work was published in a French version written by Dutch government administrator and social reformer Karel Lodewijk Keverberg Van Kessel and is based on the original Dutch manuscript of the projects main political architect, Johannes Van den Bosch (1780-1844), a high ranking military officer and later Governor of the Dutch East Indies. Keverberg also added a lengthy preface and notes to Bosch's manuscript. Founded in 1818, Frederiksoord, near Zwolle in the Drenthe province, was a prototype free to enter and to leave agricultural colony projected for 1500 settlers and their families, the first of 3 such free (of totally 7) „Koloniën van Weldadigheid" (the others were Wilhelminaoord and Willemsoord) founded and funded by »The Society of Benevolence«, a trust of enlightened nobles, high officials and businessmen with philantrophic, macroeconomic impetus, patronised by Prince William Frederick (who also gave Frederiksoord it's name). The expressed goal of the colonies was to provide impoverished people (of which many had drifted into unemployment, poverty, neglect and subsequently also crime during and after the Napoleonic Wars) with employment and education, therefore offering tools for maintenance as well as for social and economic reintegration. Evaluations on the founder's intentions nowadays differ. Whereas some praise them as the creators of one of the most remarkable social experiments, based on 19th century Utopian thinking on the social order, others stress that they basically wanted to clean land for future profits on a large scale, by the means of exploiting labour and accompanied by social segregation, humiliating surveillance as well as correction and punishment. According to a contemporary articel in the Brockhaus encyclopedia the settlers had to be disciplined, clean and thrifty, otherwise their salaries and even natural produce was retained. „Still, being a Lowlands pauper just after the Napoleonic wars can't have been much of a picnic. Federiksoord was, to be fair, less punitive than the younger colonies at Veenhuizen where inmates were walled in to prevent escape but, looking at the dreary wastelands of Drenthe stretching out in every direction, it is hard to imagine where to escape to other than the bottle. Van den Bosch's record in introducing forced agriculture to the Dutch East Indies has won him few accolades from post-colonial historians but there is no doubt that his intentions here, while hardly charitable, do share some attributes of social reform with contemporaries like Robert Owen." (Cites with many thanks to Richard Neylon, ILAB). In Frederiksoord the »Society of Benevolence« today still has its offices. Furthermore, there is a guesthouse, a school of horticulture, and restaurated colony's cottages, in which the early colonists lived. The „Koloniën van Weldadigheid" are properties intended to consider for nomination for UNESCO World Heritage List. Although well available in institutional holdings this book is particularly hard to find. Cover strongly worn, edges and corners bumped, spine missing in bigger parts. Title page with four tenderly crossed letters, otherwise inside clean and with no stains.

        Wood engraving of a stormy night with a blasted tree (left) and a crescent moon (right), the sixth in his famous series of Virgil designs first published in Robert John Thornton, The Pastorals of Virgil (1821). This impression printed no earlier than fall 1825 after John Linnell acquired the wood blocks. Single print on thin India paper, mounted, matted, and framed.

      London: 1821 (i.e. c. 1830s or later?). Single print on thin India paper, mounted and framed. Blake created 17 woodcuts for this volume (as well as 10 other plates, of which he engraved six) which were not well received; nor were they well treated by the publisher who cut down the blocks and printed them poorly. Only a few proofs before they were trimmed are now extant. These blocks have remained amongst the most influential woodcuts in the history of British art and their influence can be seen from Calvert and Palmer all the way up to the present day. The blocks were saved by Linnell and were printed not long after Blake's death as separate impressions (perhaps by Calvert), and again in 1977 as a set by Iain Bain. Any impressions are now very hard to find. Most Linnell impressions are darkly printed; some are over inked. This a good one.For a fuller discussion, see Essick's masterly monograph A Troubled Paradise... (San Francisco: John Windle, 1999). Bentley, Blake Books, 504. Bindman 602-18. Easson and Essick I, X. "They are visions of little dells and nooks and corners of paradise, models of the exquisitest pitch of intense poetry... such a mystic and dreamy glimmer as penetrates the inmost soul" Samuel Palmer.

Spiller & Blackburn, p. 18-19. ¶ Revision of first New York edition, "made apparently by the proof-reader and not by the author." (Spiller & Blackburn) Cooper wrote Precaution on a dare. Warren Walker (James Fenimore Cooper: An Introduction and Interpretation) records it this way: "In the customary practice of the day he was reading aloud to his wife one evening from a current English novel, but found the story dull. Throwing it aside, he declared, 'I could write a better book than that myself.'" To make good his boast, Cooper wrote Precaution, in imitation of contemporary English domestic novels, such as those of Jane Austen and Amelia Opie. In fact, when the novel appeared anonymously in New York (and later, London), it was credited to an English woman. The publisher, A. T. Goodrich, later surprised the public when it revealed that Precaution was authored by a gentleman from New York. N. B.

        Formulaire pour la préparation et l'emploi de plusiweurs nouveaux médicamens, tels que la noix vomique, la miorphine, l'acide Preussique, la strychine, la vératbine, les asalcalis des quinquinas, etc.

      A Paris, Chez Méquignon-Marvis Libraire, 1821, kl.8, VII, (1), 84 pp., Halbledereinband d.Zt. feines Exemplar. Rare First Edition!Francois Magendie (1783-1855) "was the pioneer of experimental physiology in France. His Formulaire introduced into medical practice several of the newly discovered alkaloids, notably morphine, veratrine, brucine, piperine, emetine, as well as quinine and strychnine. " G&M"Although Magendie was interested primarily in experimental physiology, he did not neglect medical practice. For many years he suffered from not being on a hospital staff, which would have facilitated the clinical study of new medicines. In 1818, following a competitive examination, he was named to the Bureau Central des Hôpitaux Parisiens but until 1826 he had no official hospital assignment and had to rely on the understanding of his friend Henri Husson in order to observe treatments and to give a clinical course at the Hôtel-Dieu. In 1819 he was requested to give a course at the Athénée Royal. In 1821 he published the first edition of his Formulaire pour la préparation et l'emploi de plusieurs nouveaux médicaments, a therapeutical manual much used by physicians. Magendie introduced into medical practice a series of recently discovered alkaloids strychnie, morphine, brucine, codeine, quinine, and veratrine. He also generalized the therapeutic use of iodine and bromine salts. Contrary to the dominant opinion among the older physicians, Magendie favored the use of chemical substances over that of natural drugs and, in addition, had great confidence in pharmacological experiments on animals. He did not hesitate to test on himself all the substances that were shown to be harmless in the animal experiments." M.D. Grmek, Complete Dictionary of Scientific BiographyGarrison & Morton Onl.

Bound without half-titles. Tooley 283. Halkett and Laing, p. 348 (for first edition of 1760). "The 'best scandalous chronical of the day,' the supposedly fictitious characters being taken from prominent men of the time... one of the criticised being General Wolfe." (Tooley) Originally published pseudonymously, in 1760, in two volumes. Johnston's chief work (spelled variously Johnston, Johnson and Johnstone). "An excoriating satire that won Johnstone respect as a wit but few friends, the novel is set roughly during the period of the Seven Years' War (1757-63) and pretends to reveal political secrets, and to expose the private profligacy of many of the well-known--and highly colourful--public characters of the time."

Divided into a number of "Voyages," which are then separated by related facsimiles of correspondence and their transcriptions, the book is written in a mix of prose and verse. He describes the lives of important historical figures such as Fouquet, Henri IV, Marie Antoinette, and Voltaire. Particularly interesting are the vivid descriptions of neighborhoods which were suburbs in the 19th century but have since been subsumed by the metropolis. There are lengthy accounts of numerous chateaux, churches and cathedrals, villages, aqueducts, and cemeteries, as well as etymologies and historical information about the outskirts. The map of Paris and its suburbs is exceptionally detailed. The four plates depict various landmarks which Delort encounters on his trips. A fine copy. ❧ N.B.G., Vol. 13, cols. 499-500.

        La Botanique.

      Paris Badouin Frères 1821 - Folio (37.5 x 28 cm.), xi, 159, [1]pp., 65 stipple-engraved plates by Bouquet, Chailly, and other after P. J. Redouté printed in colours and finished by hand, original tissue guards, a little light foxing but plates generally clean, contemporary red half morocco gilt by Duplanil signed at foot of spine, lightly rubbed, a very good copy. Lovely example, in a signed binding, of Redouté's beautifully illustrated publication of letters on botany by the great philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778), written in the years 1771 to 1773 and apparently first published in 1782. They first appeared with Redouté's illustrations in 1805, in both a folio and a quarto issue, the latter reissued in 1821 from the original plates. This scarce second edition was printed by Alexandre Baudouin and his brother on heavy wove paper. The book serves largely as a vehicle to display the botanical art of Pierre Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) who executed all the paintings or watercolour drawings. They were stipple-engraved and (except for that used as a title-vignette), printed in colour à la poupée and finished by hand. The plates show flowers, fruits, bulbs, leaves, etc. of flowering plants and trees, some showing whole plants and others showing details, sometimes cut away to reveal anatomical details.

        Faustus: From the German of Goethe.

      Boosey and Rodwell & Martin, London., 1821. First edition. pp.viii, 86, 1 List of Plates. 28 plates, engraved by [Henry] Moses, from the original copper etchings which [Moritz] Ret[z]sch made for the German edition. Quarto. Original cloth-backed pictorial paper boards. Coleridge insisted that he "had never put pen to paper as a translator of Faust" which does not quite accord with what Goethe wrote in a letter to his son, in 1820, saying that Coleridge was already well under way with the translation. There are various theories as to why Coleridge did not wish his name put to the translation the most plausible of which, according to Frederick Burwick and James C. McKusick, editors of the 2007 Oxford University Press edition of Faustus, was that when he first undertook to do the translation, in 1814, he did not wish to be associated with Goethe's unorthodox religious views, which is ironic given that he seemed to be making Faustian pacts of his own, not least in his increasing use of opium. A more prosaic reason is that he had already received an advance of £100 for the translation from John Murray, a figure which he considered "humiliatingly low". Only about a quarter of the play was translated into verse, in a style recognisably Coleridge's, and the rest was summarised in prose passages. The fragile paper boards are rubbed at the edges and there is some sporadic spotting throughout, otherwise a very good copy.

        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.149Prout 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.
