Edition Originale. Recueil de 6 mémoires sur les beaux-arts par le peintre et critique d'art espagnol Juan Agustín Ceán Bermúdez (1749-1829), ami intime de Goya qui peignit son portrait et l'un des premiers théoriciens espagnols de la collection et de l'étude des œuvres d'art. "Ceán puede considerarse el fundador de la moderna historiografía del arte en España" (Portús Pérez). Les 6 parties dont se compose ce volume, dotées d'une page de titre et pagination séparées, semblent avoir été imprimées séparément et sont réunies ici sous un titre collectif. Ce sont des dialogues sur la peinture et la sculpture: "Diálogo entre el Cardenal D. Gaspar de Borja y Velasco y D. Juan Carreño de Miranda sobre el aprecio, suerte y paradero que tuvieron sus retratos desde que se pintaron hasta ahora" (Madrid, en la imprenta del Censor, 1820). "Bellas Artes : diálogo sobre la primacia entre la pintura y la escultura" (Madrid, León Amarita, 1822).

"Bellas Artes: diálogo sobre la escultura en la dominación de los romanos" (s.l.n.d.). Cette première édition, réimprimée en 1870, est d'une grande rareté. Nous n'avons pu localiser qu'un seul exemplaire, à la Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid (cf. WorldCat). Très bel exemplaire très pur dans sa couverture d'origine, à toutes marges et non coupé.

III, 471; Du Prel 699; Ackermann II, 234: "Sehr selten und gesucht." - Seltenes Werk des Hauptvertreters der naturphilosophischen Richtung in der Medizin. - "Kieser was a strong supporter of animal magnetism and heavily involved in investigating the clairvoyant qualities of magnetic somnambulists. He called the essential agent of animal magnetism `telluric power`, associating animal magnetism with a generalized force. In this lengthy and important work, he describes mineral, vegetable, and animal magnetism, attempting to provide a foundation in physics for animal magnetic phenomena. Kieser says that sleep is a general expression of magnetic life and that somnambulism is a natural product of the application of animal magnetic techniques. In describing magnetic healing, he places some emphasis on the power of belief as supplementary to the healing power of animal magnetism itself. The second volume contains a history of animal magnetism and a good bibliography" (Crabtree 310). - Etwas berieben und leicht bestoßen. [Attributes: First Edition]

The first published edition of Shelley's first poem of any length. It was privately printed in 1813 in a very small edition, and originally contained a poetical dedication to Harriet which Shelley was in the habit of cutting out in copies he gave to friends. Much to Shelley's consternation, this edition was printed by W. Clark without the poet's authorization (Clark spent 4 months in prison for it), and, according to Granniss 'some copies contain the dedication to Harriet (his first wife who had committed suicide in 1816), and in some, certain words and lines have been omitted..." According to Graniss, "Clark's sheets fell into the hands of Carlile who issued them both in the original and mutilated forms, in 1822 ..." Graniss 19; Forman 22; Tinker 1888

        The Pirate Fight (The Action of 9 November 1822)

      Washington, D.C.: The National Intelligencer, 1822. Newspaper. Very Good. A complete four-page newspaper of 5 December 1822 recounts the battle between the American Schooner USS Alligator, commanded by Lieutenant William Howard Allen, of the West Indies Squadron and three pirate ships, probably commanded by Diabolito, off the coast of Cuba on 9 November 1822. It occupies over 18" of front page column space and has a large, capitalized headline.The paper is toned but supple; generally clean with some staining at the upper right. The spine appears to have been neatly mended. The paper reports details of the encounter. At the time of battle, the pirate force had in its possession five US merchant vessels. The Alligator, although out-gunned and out-manned, had an experienced crew, which had recently captured another ship after a bloody battle, and commander; Allen had also commanded the USS Argus, following the death of its commander, when it engaged the HMS Pelican during the War of 1812. Allen and his crew manned launches from the Alligator in an attempt to board the principal pirate vessel, the Revenge, which fired upon the Americans with grape and roundshout. Rather than attempt to fight off the boarding attempt, the pirates abandoned the Revenge and fled to their other two ships. As Allen turned his boats to continue the attack, they came under withering fire from the pirates. In an attempt to rally his men, Allen stood up and was cut down by musket fire. The two remaining pirate ships fled the battle during the resulting confusing, leaving the Revenge and the five merchant ships the Alligator. Allen became an immediate naval hero, and his name was used as a rallying cry a year later when the Navy defeated another pirate force and killed Diabolito in the same area.

        The Holy Koran; Commonly called the Alcoran of Mohammed. Translated from the original Arabic, and with the former translations diligently compared and revised

      London: Printed for the Koran Society by R. Carlile, 55 Fleet Street, 1822. Pp. iv, 386, [2, ads]. 1 vols. 8vo. Early half linen and drab boards, original printed spine label preserved, untrimmed. Some light foxing, owner signature Wm Bronson 1867 at head of title-page, else fine.

Rare edition of the Koran issued by Richard Carlile (1790-1843), the tinsmith turned radical publisher and writer. As publisher of William T. Sherwin's 'Weekly Political Register', Carlile was imprisoned for seditious libel and blasphemy in 1817; he was a witness to the Peterloo massacre in 1819 and published accounts of the massacre. At his trial, Carlile read Thomas Paine's banned work, the Age of Reason "under the justification that the jury would have to judge whether it was blasphemous, an action that amounted to an attempt to secure its republication once again, since verbatim trial proceedings were allowed to be published (10,000 twopenny copies were subsequently sold)." His stock was frequenty confiscated and he served six years in prison (1819-1825). "Despite attempts by the Home Office to stop him Carlile was able to continue his career as a publisher, principally through the dedicated assistance of his wife and two printer friends, Thomas Davison and Thomas Moses" (ODNB). Carlile was a champion of press freedom and campaigned against superstition.This is the Sale translation without the footnotes or prefatory manner.A rare survival and an unusual imprint.

        First report of the Directors of the School of Arts of Edinburgh,

      8vo., (2) 50pp., early 19th century half calf over marbled boards, neatly rebacked and labelled, with the armorial bookplate of Ferguson of Raith on front pastedown. A fine copy. A foundation document in the origins of Heriot-Watt University which sprang organically, as it were, from this, the world's first Mechanics Institute. The first Directors of the Edinburgh School of Arts included the inspirational Leonard Horner, together with such heavyweights as David Brewster, James Jardine, James Pillans, William Playfair, and James Skene. Horner was the secretary and it is likely that it was he who wrote the present report. The mission statement incorporated in this first report is worth quoting: "The School of Arts of Edinburgh took its origin from an accidental conversation in the shop of Mr. Bryson, watchmaker, in March 1821. To a question, whether young men brought up in the trade of watch making received any mathematical education, Mr. Bryson replied, that it is seldom, if ever, the case; that they daily experience the effects of the want of this instruction, but the expence and the usual hours of masters who teach mathematics, put it out of the power of working tradesmen to obtain it. It was suggested, that it might be very possible to devise some plan by which such branches of science as would be useful to mechanics in the exercise of their trade, might be taught at convenient hours, and at an expence which would be within their reach; for an institution of this description had long existed at Glasgow, and had been attended with very beneficial effects". And the Prospectus accordingly declared that "This Association [i.e. 'School of Arts, for the better Education of the Mechanics of Edinburgh'] has been formed for the purpose of enabling industrious tradesmen to become acquainted with such of the principles of mechanics, chemistry, and other branches of science, as are of practical application in their several trades, that they may possess a more thorough knowledge of their business, acquire a greater degree of skill in the practice of it, and be led to improvement with a greater security of support ......". The Report provides a full descriptive account of the staff and students, the syllabuses of the various courses, and, of course, a list of benefactors. Among these was our Robert Ferguson of Raith who is recorded as having donated one guinea.

        Plans for the government and liberal instruction of boys, in large numbers; drawn from experience.

      8vo., (2) xv (1) 238pp., complete with half-title, errata slip (tipped in before B1, with 16 errata) and preliminary advertisement leaf dated July 1822, well bound recently in old-style blue-grey boards with a printed spine label, entirely uncut. A very good copy. Muirhead (The English at School) 66. Goldsmiths 23620. Williams II p.468. Stewart & McCann (Educational Innovators, 1750-1880), I, chap.6. Adamson pp.51-53. Simon (Studies in the History of Education, 1780-1870) pp.82-84. First edition of an influential and perhaps epoch-making book. Hazelwood School in Birmingham, founded by Thomas Wright Hill, and run by his son Rowland Hill, is an "interesting example of the best kind of private and progressive or experimental secondary school" (Muirhead). The school catered for boys of all aptitudes by having a basic curriculum with a wide choice of 'voluntary labours' which included practical subjects such as mapping, music, and modelling. Tasks were allotted on the project or assignment system and were not judged until completed. The general object of the school was simple: it was to produce men of business, not narrowly defined, but producing men with the capacity for practical administration in any walk of life. The school's characteristic features included: complete self-government by the boys, a mark system of reward and punishment of great complexity, a minutely ordered timetable, and attention to useful rather than classical knowledge in the curriculum. "The most striking point about Hazelwood, however, was its resemblance to the Chrestomathic proposals of Jeremy Bentham. The academical aspect of Hazelwood School was in some degree more conventional than the organisational side. Nevertheless, there was a seriously thought-out procedure concerning curriculum and method that foreshadowed a great deal of what was considered progressive much later in the century. In particular, in language teaching and in the teaching of science the school was innovatory. The celebrated system reinforced the ethic of the school and stimulated the academic achievement of the pupils. The Hills themselves had little doubt of their success and they concluded Public Education with the assertion that they had created Edgeworth's Utopian idea of a school, in which the pupils improve in the social virtues, without learning party spirit; and though they love their companions, they do not, therefore, combine together to treat their instructors as pedagogues and tyrants. If Bentham's influence was to be found at Hazelwood, so too were traces of the spirit of Rousseau and Pestalozzi, but mediated through the mind and skill of the Hill family." [Stewart & McCann, Loc. cit.]

        Carta esferica desde el Golfo dulce en la Costa Rica hasta Sn. Blas en la Nueva Galicia

      - Rare Spanish chart of Central America. 1822. [Madrid]. Direccion Hidrografica. 910 mm x 585 mm. Very good, strong impression. Extremely detailed chart of the Pacific coastline of Central America, extending from Costa Rica, Guatemala, and up to Nueva Galicia (Mexico); the chart incorporates inset coastal profiles of the places visited, including the Volcanoes of Guatemala, the Tetas de Coyuca (breasts of Coyuca), and the Volcano of Colima. The chart was made from the information compiled during the Malaspina (1754 – 1810) expedition, on board the corvettes Descubierta y Atrevida, and subsequent expeditions and surveys –thus, the most up-to-date information available to the Spanish Admiralty. The Malaspina expedition was arguably the most significant Spanish scientific exploration performed in the 18th century, designed and modeled under the influences of those of the British Cook, and the French La Perouse. The crew consisted of experienced draughtsman (as Brambila and Cardero), as well as cartographers. Malaspina sailed across the Pacific in 1792 after his return from Alaska –sent in search of the Northwest Passage- separating from part of the crew (namely from Galeano and Valdes, who sailed north of the West Coast of North America) at Mexico. The expedition had goals of political, economic, and scientific nature, which required a consistent crew to achieve them: astronomers and cartographers (Dionisio Galeano, Cayetano Valdes), draughtsman (Jose Cardero, Jose del Pozo, Juan Ravenent, Fernando Brambila, to name but a few), naturalists (Tadeo Haenke) and scientists joined the expedition. The main goals were to improve the scientific knowledge of the American domains, providing the crown with a better cartographical and hydrographical knowledge of the ports and coastlines, analyzing the state of affairs of the Viceroyalties (for which the Commanders Alejandro Malaspina and Jose de Bustamante y Guerra were provided with extensive authority to request any documents necessary by the local Officials), to collect zoological and botanical samples, in all, to better understand the American colonies and thus been able to better govern them.

        Dramas of the Ancient World

      Edinburgh: Printed for William Blackwood: and T. Cadell, Strand, London, 1822. First and only edition of these historical dramas by Mary Diana Dods, the illegitimate daughter of a Scottish peer who assumed two distinct male identities, one in literature and one in life, with the aid of Mary Shelley. Dramas of the Ancient World features eight verse narratives based on the ancient civilizations of Assyria and Greece, as well as Biblical events, including the Flood and the Plague of Darkness: "now he rides / The stern submissive whirlwind, in his purpose / Robed as in some dark garment, like the cloak / Which ancient Chaos wore, before the smile / of God, illumining the dark abyss, / Created light." The influence of Byron is readily apparent in style and subject, and these well-received dramas were widely compared to his. Mary Shelley called Dramas of the Ancient World "a production of genius," and repeatedly sought a publisher for David Lyndsay's future work, representing herself as a friend of the author. The twentieth-century editor of Mary Shelley's letters, Betty Bennett, grew frustrated in her attempts to document the life of David Lyndsay, whose appearances in the historical record were confusing and few. At the same time, she struggled to learn more about Walter Sholto Douglas, the husband of Shelley's friend Isabel Robinson. Bennett's research eventually revealed a surprising twist: David Lyndsay and Walter Sholto Douglas were the same person, Mary Diana Dods, who passed as a man on the page and in life. Unmarried and unable to support herself through the few paths open to educated women, Dods first assumed the pseudonym of "David Lyndsay" to make it easier to earn a living as a writer. With Shelley's help, Dods later became the "husband" of their mutual friend Isabel Robinson, whose illegitimate child was in need of a father. Shelley secured a passport for Dods under the name "Walter Sholto Douglas," and Mr. and Mrs. Douglas successfully passed as husband and wife in Parisian society. Dods adopted tailored male clothing as part of the ruse, making one of her endnotes in Dramas of the Ancient World particularly intriguing: "In Assyria, [the goddess Astarte] was worshipped as male and female . . . and her votaries were obliged, in the ceremonies of her worship, to exchange habits, the men wearing the women's dresses, and the women the men's." A near-fine copy of a fascinating document of the Romantic period. Octavo, later plum cloth over original drab paper boards, printed paper spine label, text block uncut. Early nineteenth-century ink ownership signature to front free endpaper; late nineteenth-century bookplate to front pastedown. Marginal dampstaining to rear endpaper.

Number of Volumes: Five volumes Bound in contemporary full vellum with double gilt fillet border around gilt roll of palmettes and sheaves of wheat (?). On the spine, elaborate gilt rolls head-to-tail. Title gilt on red, number gilt on black. Stab-binding. Fore and lower edges untrimmed. Some wear to lower fore-corners. Boards bowing a little, else fine. Vellum and gilt bright, text clean and essentially without foxing. A remarkably beautiful set. On the first free end-paper of each volume, a gift inscription reading: "Margaret Lindsay/ from her affectionate/ Grandmama—/ Rome 31st December/ 1838 —". In vol. III there are pressed flowers at 102-103, 263-264. In 1791, Lombardi published, after some twenty years of preparation, the first complete Roman edition of the Commedia, which was received extremely well (and remains one of the most highly-regarded editions in Italy). This edition contains in addition the Rimario (vol. IV), an extraordinary index of rhymed line-endings listed alphabetically, and a series of biographical essays on Dante and other material (including the Visione di Alberico), as well as catalogue of editions of the Commedia. It is an exceptionally useful set, with extensive and various notes; the only shame is that it’s so very beautiful. Brunet calls it a "bonne édition." Margaret Lindsay, born 31 December 1824, received this set from her maternal grandmother, Lady Trotter (Margaret (née Gordon), wife of Sir Coutts Trotter, 1st Bt.); her paternal grandmother (the Hon. Mrs. Robert Lindsay (Elizabeth, née Dick)) had died in 1835. In 1846 Lindsay married Alexander Lindsay, who would in 1869 become the 25th Earl of Crawford and 8th Earl of Balcarres. The Earldom of Crawford is among the oldest in the United Kingdom. The 25th Earl and his son together built up the Bibliotheca Lindesiana, which at the turn of the twentieth century was one of the foremost private libraries in Europe. The present item does not bear a bookplate of the Lindesiana, perhaps because it remained in the personal collection of the countess. Brunet II.507. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Paris: chez Gihaut et Martinet, ca. 1822-1830. Folio (14 7/8 x 9 1/2 in; 350 x 242 mm). One hundred and eighteen numbered, hand colored lithographed plates printed by Langlumé.

Smooth spine decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt, marbled end-papers. Spine head and tail expertly and almost invisibly repaired. The majority of plates are clean with just a handful exhibiting mild sunning/toning or foxing. Otherwise a fine collection of these albums - originally available in black and white as well as colored - that are scarcely found complete; the Sadleir copies that Ray examined lacked many plates. In all, the best overview of Pigal's finest and most celebrated work that we have yet encountered."A major French nineteenth century artist and caricaturist, Edme Jean Pigal [1798-1873] studied art in Paris in the studio of Baron Gros. He first exhibited his paintings at the Paris Salon in 1827 and continued to annually exhibit his art there for more than thirty years. Pigal's early art was mainly in the medium of lithography. After 1838 he turned more towards painting, particularly religious and historical scenes commissioned by the French government. His last years were spent as a professor of art at the Lycee in Sens. "Although he was a fine painter it is the lithographic art of Pigal which remains his finest legacy. Beatrice Farwell writes:'From the late 1820's to the late 1830's, he (Pigal) produced numerous lithographs caricaturing contemporary customs and social types, in which he ridiculed the hypocrisy of the bourgeoisie and the vulgarity of the lower classes. His favorite characters were the street urchins of Paris, servants, coachmen and doormen, and lecherous old men' (Beatrice Farwell, The Charged Image: French Lithographic Caricature, 1816-1848, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Santa Barbara, 1989, p. 127).  "Pigal's early lithographic work (c. 1820-1830) concentrates upon the actions of one or two main figures and provides little or no background settingÂ… His lithographs created for individual sale (as opposed to those appearing in the journals) were most often hand-colored before publication. "In some respects Pigal's earthy brand of caricature was closer to the English satirical art of Gillray, Cruikshank and Rowlandson than to the political and social satires of his French contemporaries, such as Daumier and Gavarni. Perhaps for this reason Pigal's lithographs were very popular in BritainÂ…" (http://www.artoftheprint.com/artistpages/pigal_edme_jean_)."Pigal's scenes of the people are good. It is not that the originality is very lively, nor even that the design is very comic. Pigal is comical in moderation, but the feeling in his compositions is good and just. These are vulgar truths, but still truths" (Baudelaire, Oeuvres complètes, 1964 edition, p. 995)."Pigal does play to the groundlings, and no one would accuse him of excessive delicacy, but he knew his world and could depict it incisively in his lithographs" (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, p.196). Pigal's albums "have documentary value, and their fresh and unaffected representation of the people, dress, and scenes of the time gives them a degree of charm' (Ray, p. 189). Colas and Hiler highly commend these plates for their humor and depiction of contemporary fashion and costume.Ray,128 (Scènes de Société); 129 (Scènes Populaires); 130 (Moeurs Parisiennes).

Original printed wrappers, a bit soiled, small stain on front wrapper. Edges a bit frayed, minor foxing, but very good. 19th-century library stamp on title. Together 3 items. Rauch, a geographer and civil engineer, is regarded as the founder of French ecological thought. He was the author of one of the first ecological treatises, Harmonie hydro-végétale et météorologique (1802), which he revised and republished under the title Régénération de la nature in 1818 (see previous entry). In this work he pointed out the harm wrought by such destructive practices as deforestation and overfishing, and called for widespread countermeasures, including government regulation, to return the planet to a more harmonious and fruitful state. In 1821, three years after retiring from the civil service, Rauch founded what can be considered the world’s first ecological journal, Annales européennes de physique végétale et d’économie publique (see no. [3] above). Rauch edited the journal and was apparently its primary source of funding; since he was not a rich man, this left his finances in a precarious state. In his 1822 petition (no. [1] above), probably addressed to the French Minister of the Interior, Rauch notes that those landowners who followed his advice to replant their forests have been rewarded by the government with the Cross of the Legion of Honor, while he himself, "who has preached and inspired a thousand similar creations throughout France over the past twenty years, remains forgotten and in need." His Annales européennes has been praised in the Journal de Paris, and "the subjects discussed in the first numbers of these Annales have had the good fortune to be judged of such a high order, that your Ministry sent out five inquiries of the highest importance, addressed to the Prefects and to all the scientific societies in the kingdom; the solutions brought forth by these great minds arrived in succession and were immediately sent to the Royal Academy of Sciences . . . However, I continue to multiply and to develop these useful works in a veritable state of penury." The 110 current subscriptions to his journal, paid for by the Ministry of the Interior, provide only a third of its publication costs; he is thus requesting that the Ministry purchase an additional two thousand subscriptions—"the price of a single painting"—to be distributed to government officials, agricultural societies, provincial magistrates and members of the clergy. The document dated 1 December 1823 (no. [2] above) contains the text of the letter or address that Rauch delivered to the French king, Charles X, when he presented the king with a copy of the first volume of his Annales européennes. In it Rauch begs the king to recognize and support his efforts to restore France’s damaged ecology: "Today I am greatly honored to present to my sovereign, the tribute of the first volume of the Annales européennes, which encompasses, together with the ineffable harmonies of Nature, the current state of France’s physical economy . . . in [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Le Kaire - Vue intérieure de la maison d'Osman Bey

      Il Cairo (al-Q?hira) - Egitto 1822 - Veduta della casa del sultano Osman Bey (Osman I), incisa all'acquaforte su lastra di rame, inserita nella monumentale opera Description de l'Egypte, II° edizione dal 1820-29 voluta da Luigi XVIII, importante risultato culturale dell'occupazione francese in Egitto per il periodo che va dal 1798 al 1801. Bonaparte decise di invadere queste terre per controllare le vie commerciali verso l'india ed assestare in questo modo un duro colpo all'economia britannica. Durante questa operazione, il Nostro favorì l'attività di numerosi artisti, ingegneri, matematici e naturalisti per registrare e catalogare con estrema precisione le costruzioni e i monumenti egiziani nonché la flora e la fauna. Il risultato di questo immane sforzo, che per la pubblicazione coinvolse quasi duemila tra artisti e tecnici oltre a quattrocento incisori, fu l'opera "Description de l'Egypte, ou recueil des observations et des recherches qui ont été faites en Egypte pendant l'expédition de l'armée française", che offre una globale visione scientifica dell'antico e moderno Egitto, nonché la sua storia naturale. La Description ebbe grande influenza sul movimento orientalista pittorico dell'ottocento e diede un contributo fondamentale alla diffusione dell'Egittologia.

        Tyranny unmasked

      Davis and Force 1822 - Rebound in modern brown leather. Gilt spine. Fine binding and cover. New marbled endpapers. Perforated library stamp on title page. Library ink stamp to title page and several pages throughout. Errata slip tipped in rear. Sabin 94495. Howes T65. Cohen 6334. Contents: Section 1. Unmasking the protecting-tariff policy and its advocates from many perspectives; section 2. Arguments against the protecting duty summarized through an analysis of its major consequences; section 3. A general discussion of tyranny and the choice that Americans face. John Taylor wrote Tyranny Unmasked not only to assault the protective tariff and the mercantilist policies of the times but also "to examine general principles in relation to commerce, political economy, and a free government." Taylor is considered one of the premier early systematic theorists of states' rights. In this book Taylor develops his theory of the U.S. Constitution and discusses its effect on social policies, particularly taxation, banking, and tariffs; he also treats mainly protectionism, with a good deal of discussion on the currency as well. "Little-known today, Taylor's work is of great significance in the political and intellectual history of the South and is essential for understanding the constitutional theories that Southerners asserted to justify secession in 1861. He joined with Thomas Jefferson and other agrarian advocates of states' rights and a strict construction of the Constitution in the political battles of the 1790s. His first published writings argued against Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton's financial program. Construction Construed and Constitutions Vindicated was Taylor's response to a series of post-War of 1812 developments including John Marshall's Supreme Court decision in McCulloch v. Maryland, the widespread issuance of paper money by banks, proposals for a protective tariff, and the attempt to bar slavery from Missouri. Along with many other Southerners, Taylor feared that these and other measures following in the train of Hamilton's financial system, were undermining the foundations of American republicanism. He saw them as the attempt of an "artificial capitalist sect" to corrupt the virtue of the American people and upset the proper constitutional balance between state and federal authority in favor of a centralized national government. Taylor wrote, "If the means to which the government of the union may resort for executing the power confided to it, are unlimited, it may easily select such as will impair or destroy the powers confided to the state governments." Jefferson, who noted that "Col. Taylor and myself have rarely, if ever, differed in any political principle of importance," considered Construction Construed and Constitutions Vindicated "the most logical retraction of our governments to the original and true principles of the Constitution creating them, which has appeared since the adoption of the instrument." Later Southern thinkers, notably John C. Calhoun, were clearly indebted to Taylor." - Reprints of Legal Classics. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Constituição politica da Monarchia Portugueza.

      Lisbon, na Imprensa Nacional, 1822. - 4°, contemporary navy morocco (some wear at extremities, small wormhole along upper joint), gilt border on covers, flat spine richly gilt, crimson morocco label, gilt letter, marbled endleaves, all edges gilt. Woodcut Portuguese royal arms on title-page. In fine condition. 100 pp. *** FIRST EDITION of the first Portuguese Constitution, decreed by the general, extraordinary and constitutional Cortes on September 23, 1822 and accepted by D. João VI on October 1 of the same year. On the half-title verso is stated: "Edição nacional e official." Its hallmark was the triumph of liberalism. "The Constitution of 1822 was a long document with 240 articles. It mainly followed the Spanish constitution of 1812 . to assert the sovereignty of the nation and admit the independence of the three powers - the legistative, the executive, and the judicial . This constitution . was too progressive and too democratic for its time . it lasted for less than two years in its first phase." - Oliveira Marques, History of Portugal, II, 44-5. This is the Constitution that the Andradas and other Brazilian deputies refused to sign. Initially welcomed by Brazilians, the new constitution unexpectedly hastened Brazilian independence. Three days before the Supplemento was published in Lisbon, the Côrtes declared the Brazilian government subordinate to its will. D. João's departure for Portugal, the establishment of a separate Brazilian government under D. Pedro, the Côrtes's increasing efforts to control Brazilian affairs, and the refusal of the Brazilian representatives, led by the Andradas, to sign the new constitution led Brazil to declare its independence in 1822. *** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 200.

Allt som utkom av Bruzelius serie med resebeskrivningar. Båda är ovanliga. Moritz von Kotzebue (1789-1861) var barn till dramatikern August von Kotzebue och gift med Hélène von der Howen. Han deltog som sjökadett i von Krusenstierns världsomsegling 1803-06, han var 1812 i fransk fångenskap och reste 1817 tillsammans med v. Iwangorod som sändebud till Persien. Det tyska originalet utgavs 1819 av fadern August von Kotzebue strax innan denne blev mördad samma år, och den svenska översättningen är gjord av Sven Niclas Wahrman (1772-1830). En engelsk översättning utkom 1819. På svenska utkom även "Den ryske krigsfången ibland fransmännen" 1816. Archibald Campbells (1787-?) dramatiska världsomsegling utkom i original i Edinburgh 1816, "A Voyage Round the World, from 1806 to 1812". Han föddes utanför Glasgow och tidigt faderslös gick han i vävarskola. Vid 13 års ålder gick han till sjöss som lärling. Efter ett antal olika tjänster tog han 1806 tjänst som matros på ostindiefararen Themsen och återkom inte till England förrän 1812. Då hade han efter förfrysningar under sina skeppsbrott och genom dåligt genomförda amputationer förlorat båda sina fötter. Som krympling livnärde han sig sedan i Edinburgh genom att krypa omkring och till ett positiv berätta om sina äventyr. Där blir han upptäckt av en välgörare, Mr Smith, som skriver ner hans berättelser och låter publicerar dem. Sabin 10210 för det engelska originalet
