        Neue Modifikation des Lichtes durch gegenseitige Einwirkung und Beugung der Strahlen, und Gesetze derselben.

      Münich: Lentner, [1822?]. First edition, the rare offprint issue, of the first quantitative discussion of the diffraction of light. Four years earlier, Fraunhofer had published his epochal discovery of dark lines in the solar spectrum, now called 'Fraunhofer lines,' which inaugurated the fields of spectroscopy and astrophysics. "In 1821 and 1823, shortly after Fresnel's studies of interference phenomena had received general attention, Fraunhofer published two papers in which he observed and analyzed certain diffraction phenomena and interpreted them in terms of a wave theory of light. In the 1821 paper [offered here] he discussed his examination of the spectra resulting from light diffracted through a single narrow slit and quantitatively related the width of the slit to the angles of dispersion of the different orders of spectra. Extending his observations to diffraction resulting from a large number of slits, he constructed a grating with 260 parallel wires. Although David Rittenhouse and Thomas Young had previously noted some effects of crude diffraction gratings, Fraunhofer made the first quantitative study of the phenomena. The presence of the solar dark lines enabled him to note that the dispersion of the spectra was greater with his grating than with his prism. Hence, he examined the relationship between dispersion and the separation of wires in the grating. Utilizing the dark lines as bench marks in the spectrum for his dispersion determinations, he concluded that the dispersion was inversely related to the distance between successive slits in the grating. From the same study Fraunhofer was able to determine the wavelengths of specific colors of light. Somewhat later he also constructed a grating by ruling lines on glass covered by gold foil and, even later, constructed a reflecting grating. The latter prompted him to consider the effects of light obliquely incident to the grating" (DSB). ABPC/RBH list two copies of this offprint (Christie's 23 April 2008, lot 127, $1988; Christie's 10 December 1999, $4370). "Fraunhofer (1787-1826) came from humble parentage in Straubing near Munich and had very little formal education, having lost both parents when he was eleven. In 1807, at the age of 20, he was hired by the Mathematical Mechanical Institute Reichenbach, Utzschneider and Liebherr, a firm founded in 1804 for the production of military and surveying instruments, for which high-quality optical glass for lenses was essential. The optical works of the firm were outside Munich, at a disused monastery in Benediktbeuern, where Fraunhofer received his training from a Swiss named Pierre Guinand (1748-1824). Guinand's considerable reputation rested on his skill in the production of relatively large and optically pure pieces of crown and flint glass. However, owing to a clash of personalities, Guinand resigned his contract in 1814 and returned to Switzerland, and at this time the whole firm passed into the hands of Joseph von Utzschneider and Fraunhofer" (Hearnshaw, The Analysis of Starlight: Two Centuries of Astronomical Spectroscopy, p. 17). "The glass experiments of Fraunhofer and a co-worker, financed by Utzschneider, soon gave the Benediktbeuern workshop considerable advantage over its competitors. To make better achromatic lens systems, for example, Fraunhofer needed precise determinations of the dispersion and refraction indices of flint and crown glass. He first made the necessary measurements using as a source of monochromatic light the bright yellow lines in the flame of a lamp. Then he tried sunlight with the same purpose in mind, which led him to a major discovery: 'In a darkened room, through a small opening in the shutter approximately 15 seconds wide and 36 minutes high, I let light fall on a prism of flint glass, which stood on the . . . theodolite. The theodolite was 24 feet from the shutter, and the angle of the prism measured approximately 60° ... I wanted to determine if in the spectrum of sunlight a similar bright line was to be seen as in the spectrum of lamplight, but instead of that I found, with the telescope, almost countless strong and weak vertical lines, which are darker than the remaining part of the spectrum; some appeared to be almost completely black.' "With these 'Fraunhofer lines,' as they came to be called, he had discovered the ideal means for determining the optical constants of the various kinds of glass used in the manufacture of optical instruments. He also presented to physicists, astronomers, and chemists a new phenomenon and a stimulus to develop the technique of spectrum analysis" (Jungnickel & McCormmach, pp. 269-270). Fraunhofer's paper, 'Bestimmung des Brechungs- und Farbenzerstreuungs- Vermögens verschiedener Glasarten,' describing this discovery, was published in Denkschriften der kniglichen Academie der Wissenschaften zu München 5 (1817). "This was the first of a number of scientific papers by Fraunhofer. In 1821, [Fraunhofer] published an influential paper on the diffraction of light, which he introduced with a characteristic reference to the dependence of the advance of science on precision instruments: it is well known, he said, that all researches carried out by scientists whose eyes are equipped with 'optical tools' are distinguished by a 'high degree of accuracy.' In the case of researches on diffraction, he said, adequate tools did not exist, which he thought was a likely reason why this part of physical optics was retarded and 'so few of the laws of this modification of light' were known ... For readers who were unfamiliar with it, he described the elementary phenomenon of diffraction: if the ray of light admitted into the darkened room is intercepted by a dark screen, itself containing a small opening, and if the light passing through it is allowed to fall on a white surface, the illuminated part of the surface is larger than the opening and exhibits colored fringes at the edges. He went on to give an account of his new experiments, which were of a measuring nature: 'To receive in the eye all the light diffracted through a small opening and to see the phenomena greatly enlarged and, still more, to be able to measure directly the angle of inflection of the light, I put a screen containing a narrow vertical opening, which could be made wider or narrower by means of a screw, in front of the lens of a theodolite telescope. In a dark room, by means of a heliostat, I let sunlight fall through a narrow opening onto the screen, at an opening of which it was consequently diffracted. Through the telescope I could then observe the phenomena produced by the diffraction of light, enlarged and yet with sufficient brightness, and at the same time measure the angles of inflection with the theodolite.' By this means, Fraunhofer determined that the angle of bending of light in diffraction is inversely proportional to the width of the opening. Likewise, using gratings of parallel fibers, such as silver or gold wires, he determined that the diffraction of light is inversely proportional to the separation of the wires. His gratings required fine workmanship to make the separation extremely small; with his grating of 260 wires, the separation was only about 0.003862 Paris inch and the thickness of the wires about 0.00202I inch. Later he ruled very fine gratings of glass covered with gold foil. By examining the dark solar lines with his gratings, he was able to calculate the wavelengths of specific colors of the spectrum. The precision he achieved with this 'optical tool in physical optics was impressive. "By this time Fraunhofer was back in Münich, since for financial reasons Utzschneider had had to sell the monastery in Benediktbeuem. By then he was also 'Royal Professor,' a title bestowed on him in recognition of his work, and the government had taken to calling on him for technical services. Soon after completing his paper on diffraction, in 1823 he asked the king for, and was granted, a salary as a member of the Bavarian Academy, which was to help him continue his theoretical and practical work. Later in 1823, he was named 'second curator' of the mathematical-physical collection of the academy. His duties included lectures for the educated public, a program the academy started in 1824. At Utzschneider's place, to an audience of his choice, Fraunhofer lectured twice weekly on 'mathematical-physical optics, accompanied by experiments.' Around this time there was some discussion of the state acquiring the optical institute, but the idea was dropped when Fraunhofer died in 1826. After Fraunhofer, the institute continued as a commercial firm under Utzschneider and later Siegmund Merz" (ibid., pp. 270-272). This offprint retains the journal pagination - in the journal each section is separately-paginated, this being the first article in the section 'Classe der Mathematik und Naturwissejchaften'. The journal volume in which this article appears is dated 1824, but at this period the Denkschriften were published only every three years and it is possible that parts of the journal, and hence some of the offprints, were printed earlier than the complete journal volume, possible as early as 1821.

Sabin 20413 “Highly eulogized by Coleridge, Southey, Charles Lamb, Lowndes, and Brunet. It is almost the only work relating to this almost unknown tribe of Indians, and is a memorial of nearly eighteen years of suffering and toil amongst a most savage race.” Moraes vol. 1., pp.228.'The work was held in high regard by Southey, who made much use of it. Brunet claims that the English translation was made by ‘Miss Southey'. He is mistaken, the translation was incontestably made by Sarah Coleridge (see Maggs, Voy. & Tr. volume 5-822). Sara Coleridge's translation was judged by Samuel Coleridge to be ‘unsurpassed for pure[?] mother English by anything I have read for a long time.' The author went as a missionary to South America where for eleven years he worked in the Guarany Reductions before spending seven years in the four colonies of the Abipones. Giving many details of their 'manners, customs, superstitions, military discipline, slaughters inflicted and received, political and economical regulations, together with the vicissitudes of the recent colonies...' He frequently takes occasion to refute and expose the erroneous statements of other writers respecting the Jesuits in Paraguay. Additional postage may be necessary US$572

Located in eastern Ireland south of Dublin and bordering the Irish Sea, the County is named after the town of Wicklow, which itself derives from the Old Norse name Víkingaló, which means "Vikings' Meadow", a testimony to its history. Known by many as "the Garden of Ireland", the area also was a hotbed of Irish Rebellion for Centuries and, following the 1798 Rebellion, the Rebels took refuge in the Wicklow Mountains (the largest contiguous upland region in Ireland) from which the English soldiers fought to dislodge them. In these more peaceful times, the area is a popular recreational attraction and features the Wicklow Way, the oldest waymarked long-distance walking trail in Ireland. SCARCE.

        Naval

      , 1822-1829. 1822-1829. "Treatise on Naval Affairs," 12 pages, 9.5" x 15.5", front and verso. Published in England c. 1822-1829. The "Treatise" is divided as follows: "Part I./Maritime State of Great Britain./Sect. I./Laws, Discipline, and Privileges," "Sect. II/Managements of the British Navy, Regulations, Salutes, &C.", "Sect. III/Naval Exercise," "Sect. IV./Naval Tactics," "Sect. V/Manner of a Naval Engagement," "Part II./Naval Architecture./Sect. I./The Art of Delineating Ships on a Plane," "Sect. II/Construction of Ships." There are portions of this treatise taken word for word from "An Universal Dictionary of the Marine: or, A Copious Explanation of the Technical Terms and Phrases Employed in the Construction, Equipment, Furniture, Machinery, Movements, and Military Operations of a Ship Illustrated with variety of Original Designs of Shipping, in different Situations; Together with separate Views of their Masts, Sails, Yards, and Rigging." It was published in 1769 by William Falconer, author of the classic poem, "The Shipwreck." Falconer was drowned later that year in the sinking of the frigate H.M.S. "Aurora." The "Treatise of Naval Affairs" quotes heavily (without giving credit) from Falconer's "Dictionary" which was reprinted in 1771, 1780 ("A New Edition, Corrected" by Thomas Cadell, London), 1784, 1805, and 1815 (revised). While there were 12 engraved plates in Falconer's "Dictionary," many referred to in the "Treatise," none are illustrated. Included from the 1780 edition of Falconer's "Dictionary" are copies of four plates referred to in the "Treatise on Naval Affairs," and pages 63-76 ("Naval Architecture") and 222-225 ("Ship-Building") from which "Part II Naval Architecture" Sections I and II are taken. Portions of Falconer's "Preface" are used in the concluding paragraphs of the "Treatise." From 1660-1832, the members of the Navy Board were as Principal Officers and Commissioners of the Navy. According to "Principal officers and commissioners, Office-Holders in Modern Britain: Volume 7: Navy Board Officials 1660-1832," "The membership of the Board was reduced to nine in 1822 by the reduction of one Surveyor and one Commissioner…In 1829 the Committee system was abandoned, and the Board was again composed of specialist officers with individual responsibility for the work formerly supervised by the Committees. The number of Principal Officers and Commissioners was reduced from nine to seven." The "Treatise on Naval Affairs" is not dated, but there is mentioned that the "principal officers and commissioners of the navy are four" and the "commissioners of the navy are five," for a total of nine, indicating that the "Treatise" was most probably printed in the period between 1822 and 1829. Light foxing and stains with tears at left edge where it was originally attached to a binding by string. Overall, fine condition.

        Observaciones sobre la memoria del Señor Onis, relativa a la negociación con los Estados – Unidos

      1822 - Rare work on the negotiations between Spain and United States, which ceded Spain’s claim to East and West Florida, and Spain was recognised sovereignty over Texas. 1822. Madrid. Imprenta de D. Miguel de Burgos. 8vo (162 x 105 mm). 103 pp. Encuadernación en media piel con nervios y tejuelos en lomo. 6,000 $ First edition, translated from a manuscript by Father Thomas Gough (Sabin). “In 1810, these American settlers in West Florida rebelled, declaring independence from Spain. President James Madison and Congress used the incident to claim the region, knowing full well that the Spanish government was seriously weakened by Napoleon’s invasion of Spain. The United States asserted that the portion of West Florida from the Mississippi to the Perdido rivers was part of the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. Negotiations over Florida began in earnest with the mission of Don Luis de Onís to Washington in 1815 to meet Secretary of State James Monroe Adams used the Jackson’s military action to present Spain with a demand to either control the inhabitants of East Florida or cede it to the United States. Minister Onís and Secretary Adams reached an agreement whereby Spain ceded East Florida to the United States and renounced all claim to West Florida. Spain received no compensation, but the United States agreed to assume liability for $5 million in damage done by American citizens who rebelled against Spain. Under the Onís-Adams Treaty of 1819 (also called the Transcontinental Treaty and ratified in 1821) the United States and Spain defined the western limits of the Louisiana Purchase and Spain surrendered its claims to the Pacific Northwest. In return, the United States recognized Spanish sovereignty over Texas.” (Acquisition of Florida: Treaty of Adams-Onis (1819) and Transcontinental Treaty (1821), Office of the Historian, Department of State) Sin indicación de autor, si bien se atribuye al senador y gobernador por Georgia John Forsyth (1780 -1841). La única alusión en la obra se encuentra en la página 8 sobre el origen norteamericano del autor: “ Es fácil de adivinar que nadie sino un ciudadano del país cuya reputación se ve atacada, se tomaría el trabajo de hacer este servicio (pues así se debe llamar) hecho no solo a los Estados- Unidos sino también a la España Nada importa saber quién es el que hace estas observaciones: no es español; esto no se dice con engreimiento; porque desde el mes de marzo el llevar este nombre no es ya mengua, es una gloria. Es americano (vulgo, anglo-americano) nombre que en otro tiempo se daba a los habitantes de los actuales Estados-Unidos, pero que en el año 1776 se dejó juntamente con otras divisas de la esclavitud Luis de Onís (1762-1827), político y diplomático español, da nombre al famoso tratado “Adams-Onís” firmado en 1819 entre el gobierno americano y el español con la cesión del territorio de Florida como trasfondo. Onís llegó a Estados Unidos en 1809 como embajador ante el Congreso, su misión principal era el reconocimiento de la figura del rey Fernando VII y llegar un acuerdo en la cuestión de los límites fronterizos. Sobre los contenidos de la firma de dicho acuerdo y las negociaciones llevadas a cabo escribió en su Memoria sobre las negociaciones entre España y los Estados-Unidos de América que dieron motivo al tratado de 1819 : con una noticia sobre la estadística de aquel país : acompaña un apéndice, que contiene documentos importantes para mayor ilustración del asunto publicada en Madrid en 1820 por la misma imprenta de Miguel de Burgos. Las Observaciones de Forsyth, que verán la luz dos años después, son una respuesta a los argumentos de Onís, desde el punto de vista americano sobre los puntos conflictivos y el desarrollo de dichas negociaciones. Aunque en la página 80 se concluye con un “Fin de la primera parte” no hay constancia de que se publicara una continuación de la obra.

"Juif tenant le Mezuzoth" (Jew holding a mezuzah) 2. "Juif en habit de priereur" (Jew in prayer dress) 3. "Ancien tombeau de Rachel, selon J. Nicolai" (Former Tomb of Rachel, according to J. Nicolai) 4. "Tombeau de Rachel tel qu'on le voit a present selon Mr. Le Brun et autres voyageurs" (Tomb of Rachel as one sees it today .). The verso contains twenty drawings by Daguerre of musical instruments, each captioned in manuscript. Daguerre (1787-1851) began his professional artistic career as an artist and set designer, working at the Paris Opera. In 1822 he opened the Diorama next to his Paris studio. The Diorama presented visual extravaganzas with enormous paintings and amazing light effects for a standing audience of 350. Daguerre executed these drawings in the year he opened the Diorama. In that year Joseph Nicéphore Niépce created the world's first heliograph, the first permanent photograph from nature. Daguerre soon formed a partnership with Niépce to perfect a photographic process. Finally in 1839 the French government granted Daguerre and Niépce's son a pension in exchange for the rights, making the process available as a gift from France, "free to the world." Daguerre's fine drawings are very scarce in commerce.

        Mare Adriatico Foglio X

      Foglio X della celebre carta Carta di cabotaggio del Mare Adriatico (1822-1824). Raffigura la costa adriatica dell'Abruzzo e del Molile, estesa da nord di Francavilla a sud di Termoli. Sono inoltre rappresentate le isole Tremiti. La Carta di cabotaggio del Mare Adriatico, venne prodotta nell'I.R. Istituto Geografico Militare austriaco, a Milano, in cooperazione con il R. Officio Topografico del Regno di Napoli e con l'Ammiragliato britannico. (Istituto Idrografico della Marina). L'iniziativa fu il frutto di un'attiva collaborazione con l' ammiraglio H. W. Smyth della Marina britannica e con l' Officio Topografico di Napoli, al fine di completare il rilevamento del Mare Adriatico iniziato sotto l'occupazione francese, al quale aveva a suo tempo contribuito anche Charles François Beautemps Beaupré, ingegnere idrografo in capo al Dépôt des cartes dal 1826 al 1839. Ne scaturirono carte costiere a media scala - di cui qualche esemplare è presente presso l' Istituto Idrografico della Marina - e la Carta di cabotaggio del Mare Adriatico disegnata e incisa sotto la direzione dell'I. R. Stato Maggiore generale, 1:750.000, pubblicata a Milano nel 1822-24, in venti fogli oltre il frontespizio e il quadro d'unione, di cui un esemplare è conservato presso l'Ente cartografico italiano. Carta applicata su tela coeva, in pereftto stato di conservazione. Opera molto rara. Plate X of the Carta di cabotaggio del Mare Adriatico (1822-1824). After almost five centuries of development in nautical charts depicting the Adriatic Sea, a systematic, complete hydrographic survey was carried out that resulted in the first modern nautical chart of the area. The survey, a coordinated operation undertaken jointly by Austrian, Neapolitan and British experts in 1818-1819, was the first scientific activity in the Adriatic region to be based on international cooperation. Until then, the gathering, processing and presentation of geographical data on Adriatic nautical charts were neither systematic nor institutionalized activities, so those charts could not serve as reliable, safe sources of different types of information for seafarers and others for whom spatial relations in coastal, island and sea regions were of primary importance. Given the quality and quantity of hydrographical and geographical content presented in the Carta di cabotaggio del Mare Adriatico (Coasting Chart of the Adriatic Sea), it immediately became an essential source of spatial information.

        An elementary treatise on mineralogy and geology, designed for the use of pupils, for persons attending lectures on these subjects, and as a companion for travellers in the United States of America. [Second edition, enlarged & improved].

      Cummings and Hilliard 1822 - Boston, octavo, two separate volumes: [xii, 1-480; [ii], 481-818, [1] p., hand-colored geologic map of the United States and 5 copper-engraved plates of crystal drawings]. ***CONTENT: With the exception of Maclure's "Observations on the Geology of the United States" (1817), Cleaveland's "Elementary Treatise" was the most important early American geological publication. As the author notes in the preface, compared to his first edition (1816), this second edition is enlarged by 152 pages, incorporates descriptions of newly discovered minerals and localities, adds an appendix on "meteoric stones", and "[adds] more numerous, extended and accurate observations" on American mineralogy. Chapters treat crystallography, physical and optical properties, chemical characteristics, the systematic arrangement of minerals, nomenclature, a vocabulary of mineral terms, rocks and geological processes, and more. More than 600 pages are devoted to specific mineral descriptions, with locality data. The splendid colored map, extending from the Atlantic to Texas, was the most important American geological map issued after those of Maclure. The map contains great watershed detail and employs hand coloring to delineate five or six geologic units. This book was one of the most highly acclaimed and widely used reference works in the early 19th century. ***CONDITION: This is a VG+ set in contemporary polished tree-calf, rebacked in later brown cloth with the contemporary gilt-lettered red leather spine labels laid down. Save for moderate wear to the boards, the covers are clean and very sound; joints and hinges solid, bindings very firm. New endpapers. The text pages are uniformly toned, as typical, but otherwise are largely clean and free from foxing. Light stain to the lower corners of the final leaves of vol. 2, mainly confined to the page margin. The map is in near Fine condition, printed on crisp, bank-note-style paper, with bright, vibrant colors and wide margins. It is exceptionally clean, with no serious misfolds, fold tears, stains or the offsetting seen on other copies. No evidence of previous ownership in either volume. This is a very well preserved set of an increasingly scarce treatise, with an excellent map. Ward and Carozzi 488. BMNH 356. Hazen 2422.

Jeremy Taylor (1613 1667) was a cleric in the Church of England who achieved fame as an author during the Protectorate of Oliver Cromwell. He is sometimes known as the "Shakespeare of Divines" for his poetic style of expression and was often presented as a model of prose writing. His best known works are probably "The Rule and Excercises of Holy Living" (1650) and "The Rule and Exercises of Holy Dying" (1651) (vol. IV). The editor, Reginald Heber (1783 1826) was an English clergyman and hymn-writer. One of his hymns, "Holy, Holy, Holy," has survived into our own times as a popular and widely known hymn for Trinity Sunday.

        Observaciones sobre la memoria del Señor Onis, relativa a la negociación con los Estados - Unidos

      First edition, translated from a manuscript by Father Thomas Gough (Sabin). "In 1810, these American settlers in West Florida rebelled, declaring independence from Spain. President James Madison and Congress used the incident to claim the region, knowing full well that the Spanish government was seriously weakened by Napoleon's invasion of Spain. The United States asserted that the portion of West Florida from the Mississippi to the Perdido rivers was part of the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. Negotiations over Florida began in earnest with the mission of Don Luis de Onís to Washington in 1815 to meet Secretary of State James Monroe... Adams used the Jackson's military action to present Spain with a demand to either control the inhabitants of East Florida or cede it to the United States. Minister Onís and Secretary Adams reached an agreement whereby Spain ceded East Florida to the United States and renounced all claim to West Florida. Spain received no compensation, but the United States agreed to assume liability for $5 million in damage done by American citizens who rebelled against Spain. Under the Onís-Adams Treaty of 1819 (also called the Transcontinental Treaty and ratified in 1821) the United States and Spain defined the western limits of the Louisiana Purchase and Spain surrendered its claims to the Pacific Northwest. In return, the United States recognized Spanish sovereignty over Texas." (Acquisition of Florida: Treaty of Adams-Onis (1819) and Transcontinental Treaty (1821), Office of the Historian, Department of State) Sin indicación de autor, si bien se atribuye al senador y gobernador por Georgia John Forsyth (1780 -1841). La única alusión en la obra se encuentra en la página 8 sobre el origen norteamericano del autor: " Es fácil de adivinar que nadie sino un ciudadano del país cuya reputación se ve atacada, se tomaría el trabajo de hacer este servicio (pues así se debe llamar) hecho no solo a los Estados- Unidos sino también a la España... Nada importa saber quién es el que hace estas observaciones: no es español; esto no se dice con engreimiento; porque desde el mes de marzo el llevar este nombre no es ya mengua, es una gloria. Es americano (vulgo, anglo-americano) nombre que en otro tiempo se daba a los habitantes de los actuales Estados-Unidos, pero que en el año 1776 se dejó juntamente con otras divisas de la esclavitud Luis de Onís (1762-1827), político y diplomático español, da nombre al famoso tratado "Adams-Onís" firmado en 1819 entre el gobierno americano y el español con la cesión del territorio de Florida como trasfondo. Onís llegó a Estados Unidos en 1809 como embajador ante el Congreso, su misión principal era el reconocimiento de la figura del rey Fernando VII y llegar un acuerdo en la cuestión de los límites fronterizos. Sobre los contenidos de la firma de dicho acuerdo y las negociaciones llevadas a cabo escribió en su Memoria sobre las negociaciones entre España y los Estados-Unidos de América que dieron motivo al tratado de 1819 : con una noticia sobre la estadística de aquel país : acompaña un apéndice, que contiene documentos importantes para mayor ilustración del asunto publicada en Madrid en 1820 por la misma imprenta de Miguel de Burgos. Las Observaciones... de Forsyth, que verán la luz dos años después, son una respuesta a los argumentos de Onís, desde el punto de vista americano sobre los puntos conflictivos y el desarrollo de dichas negociaciones. Aunque en la página 80 se concluye con un "Fin de la primera parte" no hay constancia de que se publicara una continuación de la obra. Le siguen 13 páginas de apéndices y extractos de documentos y cartas fechados entre 1817 y 1819 entre el propio Onís, Adams y Hyde de Neuville, ministro plenipotenciario de Francia. Sepúlveda, Cesar.

        Antiquités de la Nubie, ou Monuments inédits du bord du Nil, situés entre la première et la seconde cataracte, dessinés et mesurés en 1819.

      J.G. Cotta, [Impr. de Firmin Didot], 1822[-1827]., Stuttgart, Paris, - Edition unique de cet important "ouvrage de référence sur l'art, la culture et l'architecture antiques de la vallée du Nil", qui propose "le relevé le plus complet de son temps des antiquités nubiennes" (Catalogue du Royal Institute of British Architects). Rare exemplaire bien complet des 13 chemises en papier bleu, correspondant aux 13 livraisons publiées entre 1822 et 1827, comportant au total 62+14 = 76 planches gravées in-plano : 62 planches (manquent 6 planches, n° 10, 11, 32, 46, 47, 58, mais les planches n° 20, 22, 39 et 51 sont en double), dont 4 en couleurs (n°21, 45, 60 et 61), montrant plus de 180 vues, plans, coupes, élévations, détails architecturaux, inscriptions hiéroglyphiques, statues, paysages, etc., accompagnées de 14 feuillets d'explication des planches (un manquant mais un en double), avec vignette gravée en tête, dont 2 en couleurs, d'une introduction, d'une relation de voyage et d'une table, pour la première partie. La seconde partie, complète, concerne les "Inscriptions copiées en Nubie et en Egypte" et se divise en 14 planches d'épigraphie et 29 pp. d'analyse par Niebuhr et Letronne. Natif de Cologne, Franz Christian Gau (1790-1853) effectua ses études d'architecture à l'Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Paris à partir de 1809. Après un voyage en Italie en 1815, il entreprit un périple en Egypte dans des conditions rocambolesques : on raconte en effet qu'il aurait accepté de voyager vers cette destination avec un homme riche, mais qu'à la suite d'une brouille avec celui-ci, le jeune architecte se serait retrouvé seul et sans ressources dans un pays dont il ignorait la langue. Il décida néanmoins de rester et conçut le projet d'amender le considérable travail archéologique et scientifique de la fameuse Description de l'Egypte qui suivit l'expédition lancée par Bonaparte de 1798 à 1801, dont la publication en deux éditions (l'"Impériale", de 1809 à 1829, et la "Panckoucke", 1821-1830) fit grand bruit à Paris. Dès lors, confronté à l'hostilité du consul anglais, mais soutenu par le consul de France Drovetti, il put progresser entre la première et la seconde cataracte, c'est-à-dire faire déblayer les monuments s'élevant sur les bords du Nil, afin d'en réaliser croquis, dessins, mesures et descriptions. De retour en France, il s'entoura d'artistes et savants dont plusieurs avaient participé à l'illustration de la Description de l'Egypte et publia ainsi une "suite officieuse" du grand ouvrage modèle, de belle qualité, voire réputé plus fidèle et plus rigoureuse que ce dernier ! Il poursuivit sa carrière en complétant les travaux de François Mazois sur les ruines de Pompei puis, naturalisé français en 1825, obtint le titre d'Architecte de la Ville de Paris. C'est ainsi qu'il dirigea la restauration des églises Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre et Saint Séverin ou fit construire la prison de la Roquette. Avec l'église Sainte Clotilde, qu'il dessine et dont il commence l'édification en 1846, il contribue à la vogue du néo-gothique architectural de l'époque. La maladie le contraignit à abandonner la supervision du chantier et il mourut avant son achèvement, le 31 décembre 1853. Livres Quelques taches sur certaines chemises, de rarissimes rousseurs sur 3 planches (la n°31 plus fortement piquée), des traces de mouillures, pâles et saines, sans gravité, sur une dizaine de planches, infimes déchirures marginales sans atteinte aux gravures sur deux planches, sinon ensemble en bel état de conservation. En feuilles de papier vergé sous chemises papier bleu de l'époque, imprimées en noir, au nombre de 13 (correspondant au nombre de livraisons).

        Message from the President of the United States, to Both Houses of Congress, at the Commencement of the Second Session of the Seventeenth Congress

      Printed By Gales & Seaton, Washington, DC 1822 - Slight stains, rubbing, browning and/or foxing throughout (chiefly to extremities); small holes at spine edges (disbound); slight wear to head of spines and foredges. 12 pages (including wrappers). Upper wrapper title. At head of title: 1 (in brackets). Text of the message, outlining both foreign and domestic policies and agenda, with emphasis on the former (with reference to the South American wars of independence in particular) and with additional military and naval impetus with regard to the latter. Monroe's remarks in the concluding paragraph have an oddly contemporary ring: "The United States owe to the world a great example, and, by means thereof, to the cause of liberty and humanity, a generous support . There is no reason to doubt, that their whole movement will be regulated by a sacred regard to principle . It has been often charged against free governments, that they have neither the foresight, nor the virtue, to provide, at the proper season, for great emergencies; that their course is improvident and expensive; that war will always find them unprepared, and . that its terrible warnings will be disregarded and forgotten as soon as peace returns. I have full confidence that this charge, so far as it relates to the United States, will be shewn to be utterly destitute of truth." Dated December 3, 1822 on upper wrapper ("Printed by order of the Senate of the United States"; upper wrapper) and at foot of page 12. With unidentified holograph ink annotation at head of upper wrapper: "Clerk's Table" (most likely that belonging to an unidentified congressional clerk); an unique copy in any case. Monroe (1758-1831), American statesman and 5th US President (1817-25); also notable as minister to France (1794), Secretary of State under Madison (1811) and also (briefly) Secretary of War (1814-15); administration best known for the policy of non-colonization of the European powers in the Americas (generally known as the "Monroe Doctrine", 1823) and for the annexation of Florida (1819).

G.: Fall eines Magenkrebses mit Durchlöcherung des Magens.Cerutti wurde 1821 zum ao. Professor der pathologischen Anatomie in Leipzig ernannt und hielt seine Vorlesungen in der Anatomie. Er war also der erste eigentliche Vertreter unseres Faches an unserer Universität, die damit den meisten deutschen Universitäten vorausging."1787 beginnen die Anfänge der Sammlung mit einem anatomischen Kabinett (in Leipzig). 1803 umfasste das Kabinett etwa 800 vor allem zu Lehrzwecken genutzte Stücke und wurde 1813 um die Sammlung des St. Jakobsspitals erweitert. 1821 wurde Friedrich Peter Ludwig Cerutti (1789-1858) als erster Professor für pathologische Anatomie berufen und die Sammlung der Fachrichtung Pathologie unterstellt. Die damaligen etwa 1.000 Präparate dokumentierten vor allem die Veränderungen krankhafter Prozesse, so z. B. die Folgen von Syphilis oder Tuberkulose. Durch weitere Erweiterungen Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts und der Aufnahme der Exponate der aufgelösten Chirurgisch-Medicinischen Akademie zu Dresden stieg die Sammlung auf 6.000 Spiritus- und 2.000 Knochenpräparate an und wurde im neu errichteten Pathologischen Institut untergebracht. Dabei gingen etliche ältere Präparate verloren. Der Bestand ging auf 2.532 im Jahr 1900 zurück. Unter Felix Marchand (1846-1928) zog 1906 die Sammlung in den Institutsneubau an der Ecke Liebigstr./Johannisallee um, in dem sie bis heute beherbergt ist. Unter der Leitung Marchands wurde die Sammlung erheblich ausgebaut und durch einen eigens angestellten Präparator aufgewertet. Erstmals wurde auch eine umfassende Katalogisierung und Sortierung durchgeführt. Den Zweiten Weltkrieg überstand die Sammlung trotz Bebombung unbeschadet. Seit 1951 wurden statt neuen Präparaten Diapositive angefertigt. Während den sechziger Jahren mussten die Exponate aus Platzgründen neuen Abteilungen weichen und wurden zu großen Teilen vernichtet. Nur wenige seltene Präparate wurden erhalten. Die verbliebenen Exponate der einstmals umfassenden pathologisch-anatomischen Museums Felix Marchands werden heute wieder regelmäßig in der Lehre eingesetzt." Inst. Path. Lpzg.Friedrich Peter Ludwig Cerutti, geboren am 24. August 1781) zu Zeitz, studirte die Arzneiwissenschaft zu Leipzig und erwarb sieh 1814 die Doctorwürde. In demselben Jahre wurde er Assistent au dem von PUCHELT geleiteten poliklinischen Institute, gründete 1817 selbst eine Poliklinik für Kinderkrankheiten und übernahm 1824 nach PUCHELT'S Weggange die Leitung der medicinischen Poliklinik, welcher er von 1835 ab bis 1849 in Verbindung mit Prof. BRAUNE, dann aber bis 1852 wieder allein Vorstand, wo er durch schwere Erkrankung genöthigt wurde, seine akademische und praktische Thätigkeit aufzugeben. Er war 1827 zum ausserordentlichen, 1839 zum ordentlichen Professor ernannt worden und starb nach langem Leiden in Folge von wiederholten apoplektischen Anfällen am 26. Juli 1858. - Cerutti war ein ausgezeichneter Praktiker, im besten Sinne des Wortes, und genoss, namentlich als Consiliarius, lauge Jahre hindurch in weitesten Kreisen das grösste Vertrauen. Als Lehrer stand er auf einem für seine Zeit durchaus rationellen Standpunkte und erfreute sieb wegen seines klaren, vorzugsweise die praktische Thätigkeit des Arztes berücksichtigenden Vortrages ungeteilten Beifalles. Seine literarische Thätigkeit war, abgesehen von mehrfachen Uebersetzungen französischer und englischer Werke, namentlich der pathologischen Anatomie gewidmet siehe die "Beschreibung der pathologischen Präparate des anatomischen Museums zu Leipzig" (Leipzig 1819) - "Pathologisch - anatomisches Museum" (Daselbst 1821-1824) - "Rarioris monstri in museo anat. Lips. adservati descriptio anatomica" (Daselbst 1827). Besondere Erwähnung verdient aber noch die unter dem Titel "Collectanea quaedam de phthisi pulmonum tuherculosa" (Daselbst 1839) von Cerutti bei seinem Eintritte in die Facultät verfasste, mit vorzüglichen Abbildungen ausgestattete Abhandlung, welche für die damalige höchst wertvoll war."

The eastern portion of this vast region was formerly called Venezuela or Caracas; the western portion, New Granada or Cundinamarca; and the south western extremity of the later Quito.? It is an ambitious piece of promotional literature for even as the author wrote he assumed the rebels' total victory. Battles and skirmishes raged throughout 1822 and it was not until November 10th 1823 that the articles of capitulation were ratified and the royalist troops were allowed to march out of their stonghold in Puerto Cabello. The incomplete history of the Independace movement could be considered a book within a book as it occupys a section of some 405pp in volume 2. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        System des Tellurismus oder Thierischen Magnetismus. Erster und Zweiter Band [kmpl.]. Ein Handbuch für Naturforscher und Aerzte. Erstausg.

Zt. mit Rückenschildern (2 Bde.) Slg. du Prel 699; Graesse S.45; Ackermann II/234 (zur 2.Aufl. 1826): "Sehr selten und gesucht"; Crabtree 310: "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". - Dietrich Georg von Kieser (1779-1862), deutscher Mediziner u. Psychiater; u.a. Professor an der Universität Jena, Direktor der Irren-Heil- u. Pflegeanstalt in Jena, 1831-44 Mitglied des Sachsen-Weimar'schen Landtages, 1848 Teilnehmer am Frankfurter Parlament. Verfasser zahlreicher naturwissenschaftlicher Schriften u. Publikationen, u.a. veröffentlichte er zusammen mit seinem Kollegen Carl August von Eschenmayer ab 1817 in der Zeitschrift "Archiv für den thierischen Magnetismus". Das vorliegende Werk ist ein ausgewogener u. bedeutender Beitrag zum thierischen Magnetismus, es enthält dazu auch eine Entwicklungsgeschichte u. eine kl. Bibliographie. - Mit Register. - Einbände bestossen, beschabt u. etwas fleckig; Seiten tlw. leicht braunfleckig, sonst gute Expl. [Attributes: First Edition]
