      Printed, and sold by the Author, Harrisonburg, Virginia 1821 - An American singing school teacher and printer, Davisson (1780-1857) is best known for this compilation, which is generally considered the first Southern shape-note tunebook. 160 p.

        A Treatise on Astronomy, Theoretical and Practical. A new edition. 2 volumes.

      Cambridge: J. Deighton & Sons, 1821, 1823. Cambridge:: J. Deighton & Sons, 1821, 1823., 1821. 2 volumes. Small 4to. [2], xxii, [2], 875, [3]; lxviii, 487, [1] pp. Figs. Original half blind- and gilt-stamped calf, burgundy gilt-stamped cloth, black leather gilt-stamped labels. Prize binding for a school in Aberdeen, Scotland, won by Francis Aberdein, 1844. Very good. Robert Woodhouse was an English mathematician and astronomer, best known as a proponent of analytical calculation in mathematics. He was the first superintendent of the observatory at Cambridge. "Woodhouse is entitled to the entire credit of introducing the calculus into England, but it is doubtful if he alone, in spite of the logical power and his caustic wit, would have succeeded in converting his contemporaries. Much of his success was due to the earnest support of his three disciples, George Peacock, Herschel, and Charles Babbage…" – DNB, XXI, p. 873.

        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. 17-1/2" x 11-1/4" broadside. Text in four columns enclosed by black rules, small woodcut of a coffin below headline, untrimmed edges. Light browning and foxing, fold lines, three horizontal and one vertical, a few creases and tiny fold-overs along edges. A notably well-preserved copy of a scarce item. $1,850. * 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 a capital offense. Cohen lists this item but notes that he didn't handle a copy; his entry is 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. OCLC locates 10 copies of the broadside. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 1238.

        Shinobi no o musubi no zu [in Japanses] - illustrations of how to tie the cords of a ninja face-guard.

      1821. Hand-coloured printed leporello, ten panels and "title", each panel c.230 × 145 mm, opens to 1585 mm, folds to c.230 × 75 mm, each panel folding in half, plain card outer wraps. In recent blue cloth maru-chitsu case with bone toggles. Ten hand-coloured plates illustrating the method of securing the cords of the menpo - face-plate- and kabuto - helmet. Evidently heavily wormed at some stage, the leporello has been painstakingly, professionaly restored throughout, and despite the repairs remains highly attractive, very good. Extremely unusual visual guide to the complex lacing of the face and head protection for Japanese armour, intended for the use of ninja, the legendary "covert agents" of feudal Japan.

(Aus: Denkschrift der kgl. baierischen Akademie der Wissenschaften. Band 8). Erste Ausgabe seiner ersten wichtigen Arbeit über Beugungserscheinungen. - 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. Darüber hinaus beschreibt Fraunhofer hier noch die Konstruktion eines Apparates, der zur Beobachtung der astronomischen Spektren dienen soll. - Beachtenswert ist, dass die sehr feinen Tafeln von Fraunhofer selbst gestochen wurden. - Stellenweise leicht stockfleckig. - DSB 5, 142; Darmstaedter 342 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Untersuchungen über die Formen der leblosen Natur. Erster Band (alles Erschienene).

      Göttingen Vandenhoeck und Ruprecht 1821 - (25 x 21 cm). VIII, 677 S. Mit 16 gefalteten Kupfertafeln. Moderner Pappband im Stil der Zeit. Einzige Ausgabe dieser auf fünf Bände konzipierten systematischen Arbeit. Der Verfasser versucht hier eine Morphologie des Leblosen zu entwickeln, um darüber deren inneren Aufbau zu erkunden; dazu fasst er die einzelnen Mineralien zu größeren Gruppen zusammen. - Hausmann (1782-1859), Professor für Mineralogie, Bergwissenschaften und Technologie in Göttingen, begründete eine Systematik der Mineralien und beobachtete erstmals die Mineralbildung aus Schmelzflüssen. Er gilt als Mitbegründer der Geologie von Norwegen. Seine Arbeiten zeugen von seinem Ringen um Eigenständigkeit, von großer Klarheit der Gedanken und einer Fülle an Wissen. Er "führte schon 1803 die sphärische Trigonometrie für Kristallberechnungen ein und wendete die von Ch. Sam. Weiß 1806 entwickelte Zonenlehre frühzeitig an. 1821 erklärte er (in obigem Werk) gekrümmte Kristallflächen durch Kombinationen ebener, sehr stumpf gegeneinander geneigter Flächen, erläuterte Kristallaggregate, leitete die Nebenformen durch Abstumpfung, Zuschärfung und Zuspitzung der Ecken und Kanten der Hauptformen ab und führte den Begriff der 'Teilbarkeit' (Symmetrie regelmäßiger Kristallformen nach einer Ebene) ein" (NDB). - Besitzvermerk auf Titel. Vereinzelt etwas stockfleckig. Die ersten vier Blätter mit kleinem Fleck am rechten äußeren Rand. Einige Seiten mit braunem Fleck im Falz.

        KENILWORTH ILLUSTRATED; OR, THE HISTORY OF THE CASTLE, PRIORY, AND CHURCH OF KENILWORTH

      Elephant 4to (36cm); (x), (64), 108 pp; Engraved portrait frontis. of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, "drawn and engraved by H. Meyer from an original painting by Garrard in the possession of the Marquis of Salisbury", and 18 engraved plates (mainly views and seals); half-title, titlepage engraved with the bear and ragged staff motif long associated with Warwickshire; minor dust staining to the lower margin of the frontis, o/w contents very clean and fresh with original mid-brown endpapers; all edges gilt. Spectacularly bound in dark green morocco (by Dawson & Lewis, of Dean Street, Soho) with central armorial crests to the front and back boards surrounded by highly ornate gilt decoration of Tudor-style swags and waves framed by three gilt lines; the inner dentelles on both boards are simply breath-taking, comprising complex patterns of seemingly English floral designs along a strong folkloric theme featuring a Tudor rose in full bloom at each corner; equally ornate gilt spine with ten raised bands arranged in pairs. Despite some very minor chips and signs of sympathetic repairs, this is by any standard a remarkable binding very much in the style of mid-century middle England. Robert Dudley, 1st Earl of Leicester (1532-88) was an English nobleman and favourite of Elizabeth I from her first year on the throne until his death. Kenilworth Castle was founded in the early 1120s by Geoffrey de Clinton, Lord Chamberlain and treasurer to Henry I. The castle remained in royal hands until it was ceded to John Dudley in 1553. Dudley came to prominence under Henry VIII and became the leading political figure under Edward VI. Dudley began the process of modernising Kenilworth and before his execution in 1553 by Queen Mary for attempting to place Lady Jane Grey on the throne, Dudley had built the new stable block and widened the tiltyard to its current form. Kenilworth was restored to Dudley's son, Robert, Earl of Leicester, in 1563, four years after the succession of Elizabeth I. Leicester's lands in Warwickshire, reflective of his power and wealth in the county, depended ultimately on his remaining close to the queen.

        ENTDECKUNGS-REISE IN DIE SUD-SEE UND NACH DER BERINGS-STRASSE, ZUR ERFORSCHUNG EINER NORDOSTLICHEN DURCHFAHRT. UNTERNOMMEN IN DEN JAHREN 1815, 1816, 1817 UND 1818.

      Verlegt von den Gebrudern Hoffmann, Weimar 1821 - "The Enlightenment came to Russia under the reign of Catherine the Great (1762-1796) and the eastward expansion begun under Peter the Great saw fruition in the establishment of Kodiak by Grigor I. Shelikhov and the Russian-American Company in 1783. With a base in America, the Russian Academy of Sciences entered the field of scientific exploration, and, given that communication and supply to Alaska overland through Siberia via Yakutsk, Irkutsk, Okhotsk, and Petropavlovsk required over two years and was extremely arduous, maritime routes from St. Petersburg to Kodiak were established by the Admiralty and its modernized fleet. The first Russian circumnavigation was achieved by Ivan Fedorovich Kruzenstern and Iurii Lisianskii in 1803-1806 via Kodiak and Sitka, founded in 1804, and was a success. The Napoleonic Wars interrupted a continuation of such voyages, resulting in isolation of the Alaskan colonies from St. Petersburg, and the Russian-American Company expanded to Bodega and Ross north of San Francisco in 1812 in an attempt to establish agricultural and stock-raising enclaves, and initiated voyages from Alaska to Kauai in the Hawaiian Islands. The defeat of Napoleon in 1814 reopened the possibilities of maritime supply to Alaska and scientific circumnavigation, and Lieutenant Otto von Kotzebue (1788-1846), a native of Tallinn and young cadet on the Kruzenstern voyage, was appointed to command the second Russian circumnavigation in 1815 with a single ship, the brig Rurik. With thirty-three men, first officer G. S. Shishmarev, artist-naturalists Adelbert von Chamisso, M. Wormskiold, and Ludwig Choris, physician Johann Friedrich Eschscholtz, and navigators V. Khromchenko and V. Petrov, there was no space for scientific work aboard. Sailing from Kronstadt on July 30, 1815, the expedition crossed the Atlantic, rounded Cape Horn, reached Concepción, Easter Island, and the Tuamotu Archipelago, and arrived at Petropavlovsk on June 7, 1816. From Kamchatka, Kotzebue conducted an extensive exploration of Bering Strait and rested at the outpost of Unalaska in the Aleutians from August 26 to September 3 before sailing southward. On October 2, Rurik anchored in San Francisco Bay where Kotzebue was well received by commandant José Darío Argüello who agreed to supply the expedition with every necessity. Governor Pablo Vicente Solá traveled from Monterey on October 16 to receive Kotzebue and the officers and scientists and, conversing in French, arrangements were made for supplies for Fort Ross, and for the release of Russian prisoners held for illegal hunting of sea otter in Spanish territory. Solá, nonetheless, registered his complaint over Russian encroachment at Ross and Bodega, and on October 25 Ivan Aleksandrovich Kuskov, commandant of Ross, traveled to San Francisco to negotiate differences. After three days of discussion, Kuskov declined to treat the legality of the Russian presence or abandon Ross, and Kotzebue agreed to present the matter before the Imperial Court on his return. In the interim, the naturalists made extensive geographic, ethnographic, botanical, and zoological observations, with the earliest description of the California poppy made by Eschscholtz and extraordinary drawings realized by Choris. Sailing from San Francisco on November 1, Kotzebue proceeded to Kauai where he remained from November 24 to December 14 and, following further exploration in the south, returned to Unalaska on April 12, 1817, where he repaired Rurik. On June 17, the expedition sailed for the Bering Strait, but finding it still iced, returned to Unalaska until August 16, when the homeward voyage was begun. After making further repairs in Manila, Kotzebue rounded the Cape of Good Hope and reached Kronstadt on July 22, 1818. Although Kuskov complained of Kotzebue's interference in the affairs of the Russian-American Company, the expedition was considered a success and from 1823 to 1826 he commanded a second circumnavigation with Eschscholtz, again [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Text volumes in original boards, expertly rebacked, folio atlas with matching modern paper boards, all with printed paper spine labels. Light wear to boards. Light tanning and dust soiling. Atlas plates generally clean, with an occasional marginal fox mark. Very good. Text leaves untrimmed. First French edition, with the very rare atlas not published with the English edition. This is the first Russian circumnavigation, written by its commander, and of great importance to Pacific history for his account of the attempt to open Japan to commerce, and for Krusenstern's notes on the Russian-Chinese trade. The two ships sailed from Kronstadt on July 19th, 1803, and were together until the Marquesas and Hawaii. They visited Hawaii in the summer of 1804, touching briefly on the Big Island to trade for needed supplies. From there Krusenstern sailed by himself for Kamchatka, where he made extensive surveys and ethnographic inquiries. Japan was the main focus of the expedition. They arrived at Nagasaki on Aug. 30th, 1804, with the emissary from the Tsar, and presents, including looking glasses and a portrait of Catherine the Great. Hoping to open a trade mission, and expecting more freedom than was granted the Dutch, they found themselves "greatly mistaken." They were kept in confinement and suspense, and at the audience the following April, the negotiations collapsed. The ships' repairs were put to the Imperial account, all gifts were sent back, and they were politely but firmly asked not to return. The narrative contains a detailed account of the negotiations and includes a view of Nagasaki Harbor, one of the first views of Japan published in the west. Krusenstern charted much of the west coast of Japan, made a short stop at Hokkaido, and at Aniwa Bay, and gives an account of his contact with Ainu people. The fine atlas is illustrated with twenty-one lithographic plates by Engelmann and nine engraved maps (three folding). Though unsigned, O'Reilly says the plates are probably the work of Tilesius, one of the naturalists of the ship. They include a portrait of Krusenstern, four views of Nukuhiwa and eight of Japan (including the Ainus). The maps include three of the Marquesas and four of Japanese interest.

        LES FARFADETS, ou Tous Les Démons ne Sont pas de L'Autre Monde.

      Paris, Chez l'Auteur et Gueffier, marchands de nouveautés, 1821 - TI: 94pp, 362pp ; T2 : 463pp ; T3 : 447pp, portrait de l'auteur et 8 planches lithographiées, dont une dépliante. Trois volumes in-8, en demi chagrin vert maroquiné, état neuf malgrés quelques piqûres), abondement illustré de planches lithogrphiées bien encrées. Edition originale limitée à 400 exemplaires justifiés par l'auteur. Berbiguier poursuivi et tourmenté par la nuée des farfadets décida en 1821 de laisser à la postérité ce témoignage illustré sur la réalité cachée de l&#146;existence des Farfadets de toutes sortes. Son but ? Alerter le monde entier, les princes et les rois de ce terrible péril. L&#146;ouvrage en trois volumes illustré de lithographies fut tiré à compte d&#146;auteur. Cependant , Remords ou peur des terribles conséquences engendrées par cette oeuvre, Berbiguier détruisit la quasi-totalité des exemplaires après publication. Une grande partie de l&#146;ouvrage se compose d&#146;attaques du médecin psychiatre Pinel dont l&#146;auteur démontre l&#146;incompétence et la connivence avec les forces occultes. Ce livre aussi rare que curieux a suscité de nombreuses études et publications, tant du point de vue médical que littéraire . Le monde des Farfadets ressemble à celui de nos modernes Gremlins , le pouvoir de nuisance de ces êtres maléfique semble sans limites, : Le pauvre Berbiguier est la victime lucide des man&#156;uvres de cette nuée . « Volume II Chapitre II . Coco persécuté se réfugie sous mon bonnet de coton. On ne parlera de moi qu&#146;en le citant : on dit saint Roch et son chien, on dira Berbiguier et son CoCo ». Le texte très bien écrit est d&#146;une imagination foisonnante et d&#146;un constant intérêt ( ce qui est rare dans ce type de littérature). Cette publication est sans nul doute l&#146;une des plus étrange et rare du 19éme siècle. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Veduta dell'Anfiteatro Flavio, detto il Colosseo

      1821. La serie delle vedute di Antichità Romane, composta di 101 tavole, viene realizzata con il ricavato della e vendita dei rami della Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divise in 40 vedute edita nel 1817. Con quest'opera, per il numero delle tavole e per il formato prescelto, di grandi dimensioni, l'incisore vuole affermarsi come figura di primo piano nel mondo artistico romano. In quest'opera Rossini si cimenta in un diretto confronto con il suo predecessore G. B. Piranesi che costituisce un punto di riferimento per un incisore di vedute antiche, per quanto riguarda l'originalità e l'ampiezza della riproduzione. Il Rossini, oltre a sottolineare la sua influenza nella scelta del titolo e di alcune didascalie, usa frequentemente le medesime inquadrature e identici punti di vista del maestro veneziano. Altro elemento riconducibile a Piranesi è l'uso della luce e dei forti contrasti chiaroscurali. In queste tavole raggiunge una certa padronanza del mezzo tecnico che gli permette di cimentarsi in inquadrature più complesse nelle quali si nota un'organizzazione spaziale molto articolata. Nelle tavole è frequente il ricorso al taglio diagonale della veduta, consentendogli una più ampia possibilità di graduare i chiaroscuri in profondità. Tuttavia essendo l'opera composta da molte tavole presenta una certa discontinuità ed è possibile riscontrare in alcune di esse qualche incertezza nella impostazione prospettica ed alcune durezze nel segno. Rimanendo fedele alla tradizione corrente, la scelta dei soggetti operata dal Rossini non introduce nessuna novità; sono infatti rappresentati tutti i più importanti monumenti e luoghi archeologici di Roma. Elementi di novità sono sottolineati dalla registrazione puntuale dei lavori di indagine e di scavo intrapresi in quegli anni che dalla originalità delle inquadrature. Di particolare interesse da un punto di vista documentario sono le ultime quattro incisioni relative alla distruzione della Basilica di San Paolo fuori le mura, in seguito all'incendio del 15 luglio 1823. La volontà di voler animare le vedute, restituendo il monumento al suo contesto storico e la propria inadeguatezza nel campo della figura porta Rossini ad una collaborazione con Bartolomeo Pinelli, incisore romano, interprete e illustratore del costume e della vita popolare; a cui si devono le figure e i gruppi caratteristici che corredano le vedute. Pinelli in alcuni casi, riprende i motivi tratti dalle sue precedenti raccolte di Costumi pittoreschi romani. Incisione in rame, ampli margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. The series of views Antichità Romane, made of 101 plates, was realized with the proceeds of the sale of the plates used for Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divided in 40 views, published in 1817. This is the work with which the artist wanted to become one of the most important artists in the Roman cultural life; we can state that if we consider the size of the work and the subject he choose. In this work Rossini tested himself with his predecessor, G. B. Piranesi, who was considered as a point of reference when it came to ancient views and originality. Rossini, was deeply influenced by Piranesi, as it can be seen in the title, the legends, the same points of views and framing. Another important element he took from Piranesi is the use of light and the contrast of chiaroscuro. In these plates Rossini reached the higher mastery of the technique, realizing also extremely particular framings and a new and complex organization of the space. In the plates quite common is the diagonal view of the subject, which gave him the possibility to elaborate more the chiaroscuro. However, since the work is made of many plates, it is quite discontinuous and some of the plates present some indecision in the perspective formulation and a little harshness in the mark. Always following the tradition of his time, Rossini's choice of the subjects does not present any kind of originality; he actually depicted all the main archaeological sites and monuments of Rome. The sole novelty is represented by the precise record of the excavation works and analysis. Quite interesting, from a documental point of view, are the last four engravings depicting the destruction of the Basilica of St. Paul outside the wall, after the fire of July the 15th, 1823. The will to give life to his views, the reinstatement of the monuments to their historic context and the fact that he was not good with figures, brought Rossini to start a partnership with Bartolomeo Pinelli, Roman engraver and costume illustrator of daily life. He was the one who realized the figures of Rossini's views. Sometimes Pinelli took the subjects from his previous collection Costumi pittoreschi romani. Copperplate, with wide margins, in very good conditions.
