        The Report of the Proceedings of the Court of King's Bench.

      1822 - A Notable Freethinker and Publisher Of Thomas Paine Reports One of His Blasphemy Trials [Trial]. Carlile, Richard [1790-1843], Defendant and Reporter. The Report of the Proceedings of the Court of King's Bench, In the Guildhall, London, On the 12th, 13th, 14th, And 15th Days of October: Being the Mock Trials of Richard Carlile, For Alledged [sic] Blasphemous Libels, In Publishing Thomas Paine's Theological Works and Elihu Palmer's Principles of Nature; Before Lord Chief Justice Abbott, And Special Juries. London: Printed and Published by R. Carlile, 1822. xx, 203 pp. Octavo (8-1/4" x 5-1/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet (without wrappers) bound into recent marbled boards with paper title label. Toning, light soiling to title page, creases to corners of a few leaves. An appealing copy. * Only edition. Carlile was one of the most prolific freethinking journalist-publisher-political activists of his day. As one would suspect, he was often at odds with the government. In 1819 he was fined 1,500 pounds and imprisoned for three years for six counts of "blasphemous libel." He published this account of the first day of his 1819 trial after his release. It deals with the information against him for publishing Thomas Paine's Age of Reason and Examination of the Passages in the New Testament Quoted from the Old and Called prophecies concerning Jesus Christ, which Carlile issued as The Age of Reason, Part the Third. Portions of these were read in court by Carlile with commentary. Catalogue of the Library of the Harvard Law School II:1035. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("la bonne Soeur").

      St. Petersburg, 11./23. September 1822.. 2 SS. Gr.-8vo.. An Marie Louise von Österreich (1791-1847), Erzherzogin von Österreich und Kaiserin der Franzosen, die zweite Gemahlin Napoleons I., mit Dank für deren durch General Gf. v. Paulucci überbrachten Brief. Zar Alexander, der zum Veroneser Kongreß nach Italien reise und vorhabe sie aufzusuchen, werde ihr diesen Brief überbringen und selbst sagen, wie sehr er sich über deren Gedenken gefreut habe. Die Zarin selbst sei ihrerseits sehr erfreut darüber, daß Marie Louise in ihrer Ruhe so zufrieden sei. - Die Reise von Alexander I. sollte diesen jedoch schlußends nicht zu Marie Louise führen, wie einem Brief Alexanders an diese vom 1./13. Dezember 1882 zu entnehmen ist (Karl & Faber, Auktion 63, Nr. 257). - Papierbedingt etwas gebräunt und mit alten Ausrissen am linken Rand (minimale Buchstabenberührung).

        Dissertatio Inauguralis Physiologica sistens Commentarii de Phoronomia Animalium. Decano et Promotore A.Fr.Jos. Carolo Mayer.

      - Bonnae, Typis C.F. Thormanni, Decembris 1822, Kl.4°, 44 pp., 1 Bl., 1 gefalt. lith. Tafel., OBrosch; leicht wasserfleckig! Extrem Selten! - - Johannes Müller (1801-1858) zu Coblenz als Sohn eines Schuhmachers geboren, war schon als Knabe ungewöhnlich veranlagt und von dem derzeitigen Leiter der Schulen in den Rheinlanden, dem späteren vortragenden Rat im preuss. Unterrichtsministerium Joh.Schulze auf alle Weise gefördert, studierte seit 1819 und promovierte 1822 in Bonn. - Zum Zweck der Ablegung des med. Staatsexamen begab er sich dann nach Berlin und trat hier während eines 1 1/2 jährigen Aufenthaltes zu RUDOLPHI in nähere Beziehungen, was für Müller's Ausbildung von wohlthätigem Einfluss insofern war, als Müller nach eigenem Geständnis von Rudolphi der naturphilosophischen Richtung entfremdet und der unbefangenen Naturbetrachtung, speziell den anatomischen Studien, zugeführt wurde. Nach seiner Rückkehr aus Berlin habilitierte Müller sich 1824 in Bonn als Privatdozent, wurde 1826 a.o., 1830 ord. Prof. und 1833 als ord. Prof. der Anatomie und Physiologie, sowie als Direktor des anatomischen Theaters und anatomischen-zootomischen Museums an Rudolphi's Stelle nach Berlin berufen. Hier wirkte er als eine der Zierden der Berliner Fakultät und Universität bis zu seinem 28.April 1858 plötzlich an Herzleiden erfolgten Tode. - Müller wird zu Recht als glorreiches Haupt und anerkannter Führer einer biologischen Schule verehrt. Als Forscher und Lehrer vielseitig und bahnbrechend wie selten jemand, hat er in beiden Beziehungen namentlich auf den Gebieten der vergleichenden Anatomie und Physiologie eine geradezu überwältigende Tätigkeit entwickelt und diese Disziplinen mit zahllosen Neuerungen bereichert.-cf.Pagel - - Erste und einzige Ausgabe der extrem seltenen Dissertation von Johannes Müller. - "Die Bewegungsstudien an Gliedertieren, die der Einjährig-Freiwillige drei Jahre vorher an der Koblenzer Kasernenmauer begonnen hatte, fanden also eine Fortsetzung. Die im Isis-Aufsatz (seine erste Publikation) mitgeteilten Gedanken und Beobachtungen wurden noch erheblich vermehrt und dann von Müller als Inaugural-Dissertation unter dem Titel "De Phoronomia Animalium" (deutsch etwa: "Bewegungsgesetze im Tierreich") bei der Medizinischen Fakultät der Universität Bonn eingereicht. Das Grundprinzip vergleichender Physiologie wird bereits hier angewandt: ein und dieselbe Funktion, hier die Bewegung, wird bei Tieren der verschiedensten systematischen Zugehörigkeit untersucht und in Vergleich gebracht. Viele von Müller mitgeteilte Einzelbeobachtungen sind wertvoll und wurden von ihm später in sein "Handbuch der Physiologie" aufgenommen." - "So wird das Leben in der Bewegung gedeutet als eine "organische Säule"; die Pole sind Bewegung und Streckung, oder die Kreisbewegung und die Bewegung in der Längenform: - beide auseinandergerissene Hälften der parabolischen Linie, auf welcher das Leben spielt"." - "Nun - wenige Jahre später hätte Müller diese Sätze nicht mehr geschrieben, und es ist zu glauben, was Du Bois-Reymond mitteilt: "Mit solchem Ingrimm blickte Müller nachmals auf diese Verirrungen zurück, daß er selber dieser Arbeiten nie wieder gedachte, und jedes Exemplar, dessen er habhaft werden konnte, a u f k a u f t e und v e r b r a n n t e"." - G. Koller, Johannes Müller, 1958, S.32-34 - "Unter seinen Thesen verteidigt er u.a. die Auffassung:"Psychologus nemo, nisi physiologus". Das ist ein Gegenstand, den er auch später hin oft behandelt hat." - Später in "Berlin wird Müller für immer von seiner Neigung zur romantischen Interpretation der Natur geheilt, ohne daß er den Wert einer philosophischen Betrachtung der Natur je geleugnet, noch für überflüssig erklärt hätte. Ganz im Gegenteil, er hat es immer wieder ausgesprochen, daß es keine sinnvolle naturwissenschaftliche Forschung gibt ohne die Einordnung des Erfahrenen in das nur gedanklich zu erfassende und zu erweiternde Gesamtbild der Natur." siehe ausführlich - K.E. Rothschuh, . [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A New Edition, in Five Volumes: Reprinted from the Text of Dr. Toulmin's Edition, With His Life of the Author and Account of His Writings. Revised, Corrected, and Enlarged. Volumes I-V. [FIVE VOLUMES]

      London, Printed for William Baynes and Son, 1822.. Five volumes. Royal octavo. Pp. xxxv, 479; xvi, 524; xiv, 468; ix, (iii), 502; viii, 288, ccxii, including Supplement, Appendix, Index. Engraved frontispiece portrait to the first volume (offset onto title-page). Hardcover, handsomely bound in modern quarter cloth, spines with matching decorative labels, gilt; entirely untrimmed, partly unopened; occasionally light sporadic foxing. In fine condition. A most attractive set. ~ Daniel Neal (1678-1743), English historian, minister, and Nonconformist divine, was educated at the Merchant Taylors School, and at the universities of Utrecht and Leiden. In 1704 he became assistant minister, and in 1706 sole minister, of an independent congregation worshipping in Aldersgate Street, and afterwards in Jewin Street, London, where he remained almost until his death. In 1720 he published his ?History of New England?, which obtained for its author the honorary degree of M.A. from Harvard college. He also undertook to assist Dr. John Evans in writing a history of Nonconformity. Evans, however, died in 1730, and, making use of his papers for the period before 1640, Neal wrote the whole of the work himself. This ?History of the Puritans? deals with the time between the Reformation and 1689. The first volume appeared in 1732, and the fourth and last in 1738. ?The History of the Puritans? was edited, in five volumes, by Dr Joshua Toulmin (1740-1815), who added a life of Neal in 1797. This was reprinted in 1822, and an edition in two volumes was published in New York in 1844. With the small oval stamp of New College London.

In the chaos surrounding Brazilian independence, the author, who describes himself as "Tenente Coronel, e Commandante do 2º regimento de milicias da mesma villa" (Caxias, in Maranhão) describes how his superior there abused his power by meting out punishments not ordained by law. "Como he possivel a Regeneração do Brazil, cuja sorte está entregue a similhantes homens para quem os successos de Portugal de 1821 não merecem mais conceito, nem mais elogios, do que os successos de Pernambuco de 1817, que elles tratão por borracheira!!!"

        PHARSALIA

      Parisiis: Apud Lefevre Bibliopolam, 1822. n. Hardcover. Unusually Delicate and Fine for Such Small Paintings. 108 x 76 mm (4 1/4 x 3"). Two volumes. Edited by Jean-Augustin Amar. Charming contemporary green straight-grain morocco, covers panelled with fine gilt and blind rolls, raised bands, spine compartments outlined in blind and with pretty quatrefoil gilt centerpiece ornament, gilt titling, turn-ins with decorative gilt roll, all edges gilt. EACH VOLUME WITH A LOVELY PASTORAL FORE-EDGE PAINTING, one depicting Fetherstone Castle, Northumberland, the other Lowther Castle, Westmoreland. In later green cloth chemises and a quarter morocco slipcase, its spine decorated in much the same fashion as the volumes. Front pastedown of both volumes with the armorial bookplate of Sir James Stuart, Bart.; front free endpaper of both volumes with the oval morocco bookplate of R. B. Adam; front free endpaper of first volume with the oval morocco bookplate of Mary Lecomte du Nouy. Brunet III, 1201; Graesse IV, 274. Joints just slightly rubbed, spines faintly and uniformly darkened, a touch of browning to edges of leaves, intermittent light foxing, otherwise a fine set, the text generally clean and fresh, the bindings lustrous, and the fore-edge paintings particularly well preserved, with rich colors. These lovely little volumes stand out on multiple levels. The book was finely printed by Pierre Didot of the renowned French firm; the delicacy and intricacy of the binding decoration is notable (partly because of the small size of the volumes); and the fore-edge paintings--which seem to be early, perhaps even from the time of publication--are particularly well executed. Characterized by serene bovinity, our two paintings each feature a massive castle in the background, trees sufficient to frame the scene, and just enough action (involving two gentlemen and their dogs in the Westmoreland painting) to diminish lassitude without extinguishing tranquility. The artist has exhibited impressive deftness in creating convincing natural and human elements, and the notable level of aesthetic achievement here is emphasized by the diminutive area that these scenes occupy: one just doesn't often see such excellent paintings on such small books. Lucan, the Spanish born nephew of Seneca, was famous for his precocious literary achievements, but all that has come down to us is his "Pharsalia," the last of his poems, published after his death. This epic, the greatest in Latin other than the "Aeneid," chronicles the civil war between Caesar and Pompey, whose forces were defeated at the battle of Pharsalia. Our volume has very distinguished provenance. It was once owned by Sir James Stuart (1780-1853), an English lawyer and bibliophile who served as Chief Justice of Lower Canada. (It is listed on p. 121 of the catalogue of his library published in 1987.) Robert B. Adam (1863-1940), a member of the inner circle of bibliophiles that included Jerome Kern, Chauncey Brewster Tinker, and A. Edward Newton, assembled what was considered to be the finest collection in America of material relating to Samuel Johnson; a catalogue of his collection was published by Oxford University Press in four volumes in 1929. And Mary Harriman Lecomte du Nouy (d. 1974) was the American wife of French biophysicist and philosopher Pierre Lecomte du Nouy, with whom she shared a zeal for book collecting.

        Color Plate] Chrysal, or, The adventures of a guinea: wherein are exhibited views of several striking scenes : with interesting anecdotes of the most noted persons in every rank of life through whose hands it has passed, by an Adept [12 hand-colored plates]

      Printed for Samuel Richards and Co. 3, Grocers'-Hall Court, Poultry; and T. Mason & Sons, 2, Great Russel Street, Bloomsbury, London 1822 - Complete in three volumes. 12mo; viii, 319; 321; 326pp, plus 12 hand-colored plates engraved variously by Maddocks, E. F. Burney, and W. Read. Uniformly rebound to style by Fitterer, with period marbled paper-covered boards and modern paper labels; top edges gilt; end papers renewed with laid paper. Binding pristine; some gatherings foxed in volume I, otherwise a very good or better set with only sporadic foxing and offsetting from the plates, which are generally fresh and bright. Originally published pseudonymously in 1760 in 2 vols., then in an octavo color-plate edition, "To which is now prefixed a sketch of the author's life" (spelled here Johnston or Johnson; elsewhere Johnstone) in 1822, which Tooley (no. 283) calls the "best edition" of the "best scandalous chronicle of the day." OCLC Number: 187449866. This, Johnston's chief work, "appeared in four volumes between 1760 and 1765. The first and second volumes were written during a visit to the earl of Mount-Edgcumbe in Devon and had already gone through three editions before Johnstone was prevailed on to write the last two volumes, and the whole work was frequently reprinted during the eighteenth century (and translated into French). 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."

      London: W. T. Gilling; printed by G. Schulze, 1822. First Edition. Half Morocco over Marbled Boards. 4to, 11 by 7.5", 28 by 19 cm. With 30 exquisite hand-colored plates. Lipperheide 907. Colas 2530. Shelfwear and rubbing to contemporary half red morocco and marbled boards. Some finger soiling to margins of plates and text leaves. Some foxing of blank preliminaries. Still, tissue guards intact and overall quite clean, with plates fresh, bright, and like small fine paintings, and the pictures are more richly detailed than the typical aquatint costume books of the same vintage. The illustrations also capture perfectly the folkish, even naive, simplicity associated with Swiss culture at the time yet with elegance. There is, in other words, no crudeness or coarseness to the figures depicted. A most extraordinary achievement, comparable to the paintings of Lory of the same period.
