        Fine original small bust-length drawing in black chalk and pen and ink on blue-grey paper, purportedly of the composer

      - Ca. 71 x 60 mm. Signed with monogram "E.B." at lower left and identified on the verso as being of Carl Maria von Weber. Mounted to dark ivory stock; hinged to mount at upper margin of verso. We have been unable to identify the monogrammist "E.B."A prototypical 19th-century musician-critic, he sought through his works, words, and efforts as performer and conductor to promote art and shape emerging middle-class audiences to its appreciation. His contributions to song, choral music, and piano music were highly esteemed by his contemporaries, his opera overtures influenced the development of the concert overture and symphonic poem, and his explorations of novel timbres and orchestrations enriched the palette of musical sonorities. With the overwhelming success of his opera Der Freischütz in 1821 he became the leading exponent of German opera in the 1820s and an international celebrity. A seminal figure of the 19th century, he influenced composers as diverse as Marschner, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Meyerbeer, Berlioz, and Liszt." Paul Corneilson et al in Grove Music Online.

        An essay on the production of wealth;

      8vo., xvi 430pp., title-page lightly soiled and with faint show-through of an old library stamp on verso, another old inkstamp at foot of final leaf, in a fine recent binding of old-style sprinkled half calf gilt with raised bands and morocco gilt-lettered spine label. A handsome copy. Mark Blaug (Great Economists before Keynes) considered this to be "full of cogent comments on value, rent, profits and Say's law of markets". [p.252]. J.R. McCulloch (1845) thought it to be "well-written, ingenious, and generally sound". Although damned by Palgrave ("as a rule are devoid of permanent merit"), III, p.550, modern economic historians have been kinder, suggesting that Torrens has indeed made valuable contributions to political economy. Spiegel [The Growth of Economic Thought, p.347], says this: "Torrens's theory of value contains both a critique, one of the earliest, of Ricardo's labor theory of value, and as a positive contribution a value theory of his own. He denied the validity of the labour theory value in a multifactor economy and, as Lauderdale had done before and as Bailey was to do again shortly, refused to participate in the search of an invariable measure of value. To him, value is a more relation between goods, not between the quantities of labor embodied in them but between the quantities of capital, including the outlay for wages, invested in their production. If competition equates the rates of profit throughout the economy, then, so Torrens argued, goods must exchange in proportion to the capital invested in them, with an adjustment to take account of the different durability of capital".

        A Narrative of Travels in Northern Africa, in the Years 1818, 19, and 20; Accompanied by Geographical Notices of Soudan, and of the Course of the Niger with a Chart of the Routes and a Variety of Coloured Plates Illustrative of the Costumes of the Several Natives of Northern Africa

      Albemarle Street, London: John Murray, 1821. 1st Edition. Hardcover. George Francis Lyon (1795 - 1832) was an Arctic and African explorer. In 1818, he was sent with Joseph Ritchie by Sir John Barrow to find the course of the Niger River and the location of Timbuktu. A year later they had only got as far as Murzouk where they both fell ill. Ritchie never recovered and died there, but Lyon survived and traveled further around the region. A year after he left, he arrived back in Tripoli, the expedition being a complete failure. This book recounts details of that expedition. Upon return, he was promoted and in 1821 - the same year this book was published - given the command of HMS Hecla on his second attempt. Lyon was reputed to have genuine informed interest in the culture and inhabitants of the lands he visited. Wearing Arab/Muslim dress and learning fluent Arabic he managed to blend in with the inhabitants of North Africa. In the Arctic, he was tattooed by the Inuit and ate raw caribou and seal meat with them. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1827. This volume features the original half leather binding over marbled boards with leather corners, marbled page edges, and marbled endpapers. The contents are superior - clean and bright with only light intermittent spotting. The large folding map and all 17 hand-colored plates are present. The only previous ownership marking are some collector notes in pencil on the ffep and a stamp stating "Withdrawn" from "The James Humphreys Collection" on the title page verso. The original binding is preserved, but considerably worn at the edges. The hinges are split and bear a crude leather overlay reinforcement at the top and bottom of the spine, which keeps the boards attached to the binding.

There was a distinct market and vogue for this sort of book in the 18th and early 19th centuries, and this is only one of several examples. Given the number of solecisms one encounters in blogs, letters, and comments on the web, I would like to see the following admonition from the first page enshrined in Google: "Orthography (or correct spelling ) is of the highest importance; ignorance in this particular is always considered a mark of ill-breedinjg, defective education, or natural stupidity."

        Promenades aériennes ou Montagnes françaises considérées sous le rapport de l'agrément et de la Santé, contenant la description de l'établissement Beaujon, par F.-F. Cotterel. Seconde édition revue, coorigée et augmentée par l'Auteur, d'après les nouvelles rectifications de l'Établissement.

      De l'Imprimerie de A. Belin, Paris 1821 - In-8 de 80 pp., [la table des matières (1 p.) manque]. 1 planche montée en regard du titre, reliure moderne en tolie grise peinte, avec cette légende : « On entend dire que la Publicité et la Réclame sont des Sciences nouvelles. Ce petit livre paru en 1821 fait la preuve du contraire (janvier 1921) Louis Clerc ». Description des fameuses montagnes françaises du jardin Beaujon sur les Champs-Élysées, ancêtre des montagnes russes : Cette attraction possédait un rail qui se divisait en deux ; les passagers embarquaient au bas de la montée centrale, dans d?élégantes voitures à trois roues et redescendaient ensuite les deux rails latéraux, incurvés avant de revenir au point de départ. Les wagonnets pouvaient alors atteindre prés de 60 km/h. Un récit donné par Thomas Moore (The Fudge Family in Paris) nous renseigne sur les bienfaits des promenades aériennes : « Hier soir, à Beaujon ? je ne saurais trop comment vous décrire ce jardin enchanté. Figurez-vous des chars qui partent d'un pavillon illuminé suspendu dans les airs, et vous emportent Dolly I'on ne sait où. Les charmants véhicules dans lesquels vous faites ce voyage si délicieusement périlleux, faites bien attention. contiennent deux personnes. Un cavalier vous demande humblement si vous voulez vous aventurer avec lui (.) Eh bien donc, pas plus tard qu'hier soir, j'étais debout à observer les mines et les petites façons des jeunes filles qui se lançaient, l'impatience de quelques-unes pour courir au danger, les rires affectés des autres, partagées entre le plaisir et la crainte, lorsque je vis s'avancer. ô Dolly, imaginez si vous le pouvez. une espèce de Werther, au teint pâle, au visage sévère, avec des moustaches qui lui donnaient (ce que nous rencontrons si souvent dans les livres) cette ravissante expression de corsaire, demi-farouche, demi-tendre, un peu de la physionomie qu'on prêterait à une hyène amoureuse, quelque chose qui tient à la fois d'Abailard et du vieux Blucher ! C'était vers moi qu'il s'avançait, Dolly ! Otant son chapeau il laissa voir une tête (un peu chauve, il est vrai, mais si guerrière)! et me dit en mauvais anglais : « Ah ! si mamzelle était si bonne que de vouloir faire un petit tour ? ». Nous partîmes. et quoique, d'honneur, ma chère, je ne susse pas d'abord qui de mes pieds ou de ma tête partaient les premiers, car il semblait que le ciel et la terre se confondissent, cependant, en dépit du danger, nous recommençâmes ». Un autre témoignage plus sérieux, celui-ci médical : « Un des effets bien marqués des voitures, c'est de faire passer avec rapidité dans un air nouveau, et conséquemment au poumon un aliment plus vif, plus oxygéné. Aussi la circulation est-elle activée, la respiration plus fréquente; plus vive, par leur usage. C'est un bon procédé à employer dans l'atonie pulmonaire, dans l'inertie et la langueur de la respiration, pour réveiller par un stimulus plus marqué l'organe engourdi. C'est surtout sous ce rapport que les courses rapides en char, connues sous le nom de Montagnes russes, peuvent être conseillées, à part les accidents que ce genre d'exercice peut occasionner. Elles procurent des espèces de douches aériennes, qui peuvent être utiles dans quelques circonstances (Voyez Promenades aériennes, par Cotterel, Paris 1817) » (Dictionnaire des sciences médicales, 1822). Bel exemplaire.

I 'BLOW MY OWN HORN' KNOWING HOW MUCH STRAIN IT WILL BEAR WITHOUT INJURY ALTHOUGH IT MAY NOT BE VERY MUSICAL. "HOPING TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON ON THIS SUBJECT I AM VERY RESPECTFULLY YOURS, LINUS YALE, JR." Linus Yale, Jr. [1821-1868] invented the famous Yale Cylinder Lock, based on ancient Egyptian mechanisms and perfected by Yale, a distant relative of Elihu Yale, the founder of Yale University. The Yale lock, "the world's favorite lock," is touted on the Yale Lock website as "one of the oldest international brands in the world and probably the best- known name in the locking industry." Yale joined his father's business, the Yale Lock Shop in Newport, New York, in 1850. He perfected and patented his father's pin tumbler cylinder lock in 1861. By 1862 he introduced the Monitor Bank Lock, which transformed banks from key locks to dial or combination locks. He fine-tuned the cylinder lock with a second patent in 1865. He and Henry Robinson Towne formed the Yale Lock Manufacturing Company in Stamford, Connecticut. Materials and manufacturing practices have changed over the years, but the principle of Yale's design is mostly unchanged ["Our beginning - the history of Yale," accessed at the web site of Yale Lock]. Jerome Wells [1813-1880 ] was the first president of the Chicopee Savings Bank, organized in 1854, and served as such until 1874. [Everts: HISTORY OF THE CONNECTICUT VALLEY IN MASSACHUSETTS... VOL.
