      1822-23 1822 - Very Early and Important Manuscripts on EcologyRauch, François Antoine (1762-1837). (1) Signed manuscript petition, in French, to an unnamed French official, written in a formal secretarial hand, headed "Division des Sciences et des Arts" and "Annales Européennes." 4pp. Paris, 19 March 1822. 371 x 243 mm.

(2) Exposé présenté au Roi le 1er décembre 1823, avec l’hommage en trois volumes, de la première année des Annales Européennes. Manuscript document in a secretarial hand. 1 page. N.p., 1823. 350 x 222 mm. Stain in right margin affecting several words, small lacuna in right margin, but very good. A few annotations in red ink. (3) Annales européennes de physique végétale et d’économie publique. Vol. I, no. 1 (April 1821) only. 8vo. [4], 102pp. Engraved frontispiece. 225 x 140 mm. (uncut). 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.

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

        Map of South Carolina, Constructed and Drawn from the District Surveys, ordered by the Legislature: by John Wilson, late Civil and Military Engineer of So. Cara. The Astronomical Observations

      Professor Geo. Blackburn and I. M. Elford, Philadelphia 1822 - Engraved by H. S. Tanner. Entered according to Act of Congress, the 10th day of April 1822, by John Wilson, Agent of the Board of Public Works of the State of South Carolina. Excellent large wall map that was the first large scale map of South Carolina made after independence. Includes an inset map of Charleston Harbor. John Wilson was charged with the task of creating an accurate state map that would show all of the new internal improvements to the State. Tanner referred to the map as "one of our best and most scientific maps." Based on the district surveys commissioned by the State, the map later became the source of the district maps in Mills' Atlas of South Carolina of 1825. The wall map is a composite map of 4 separate sections very recently mounted on new linen by Green Dragon Bindery. It is 45.7 inches wide by 59.8 inches long (116.1 x 151.9 cm) with original outline and wash color, and is in wonderful condition for its age and size. As often occurs with maps issued in sections, the top 2 sections are very slightly wider than the bottom two sections, so when the sections are joined, the border edges do not align perfectly. The map includes a presentation on the original linen as follows: "Presented by John Hazlett, Esq. of Charleston, S.C. March 24, 1823. This very scarce map is infrequently offered.

        Meister Floh.

      1822. HOFFMANN, E.T.A. Meister Floh. Ein Märchen in Sieben Abentheuern zweier Freunde. [2], 267, [3] pp. 8vo., 185 x 120 mm, bound in original boards, illustrated on both covers with sepia aquatints designed by Hoffmann and executed by F.C. Thiele, in modern matching slipcase. Frankfurt am Main: Friedrich Wilmans, 1822. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, and most importantly with this curious book, the first issue of the famous binding which was personally designed by E.T.A. Hoffmann. In subsequent issues the binding was decorated by way of lithography, not aquatint. Hoffmann's scathing satire on the police state, entitled "Master Flea," has the central character portrayed on the cover "travelling in disguise." The Master Flea is the master of ceremonies in a flea circus whose bite grants youth to the victim. The book was censored by the Prussian government, and Hoffmann himself became a suspect of dissent and subversion. The work was a thinly disguised fairy tale, in which Hoffmann quoted directly from actual trial documents and even ridiculed the chief of police. Court proceedings were initiated against the author; on January 23, 1822, the original manuscript of Meister Floh was confiscated on the orders of King Friedrich Wilhelm III. Hoffmann was interviewed at his sick bed on February 22nd; meanwhile Meister Floh was published in the Spring (albeit in somewhat revised form); Hoffmann's case never went to trial: he died on June 24, 1822 after a long illness. Binding expertly recased, modern endpapers. Goedeke VIII, 498, 65. Salomon 173.

        Philosophical Recreations, or Winter Amusements: A Collection of Entertaining & Surprising Experiments in Mechanics, Arithmetic, Optics, Hydrostatics, Hydraulics, Pneumatics, Electricity, Chemistry, Magnetism, & Pyrotechny, or Art of Making Fire Works, Together with the Wonders of the Air Pump, Magic Lanthorn, Camera Obscura, &c. &c. &c. and a Variety of Tricks with Cards

      London: Printed for Thomas Hughes, 1822. First edition, second issue, of this collection of educational home entertainments, first published in 1820. These "winter amusements" were ideally suited for nineteenth-century households whose members felt a moral imperative against idleness. The recreations include number games and puzzles, arts and crafts, home improvement projects, magic tricks and secret codes, and scientific experiments inspired by the likes of Boyle. Some have clear practical application (how to detect counterfeit coins, how to make wax candles), while others do not (how to construct a talking "oracular head," how to ship a fish while keeping it alive). Still others seem downright dangerous (how to enter a room on fire, how to deliver electric shocks with a homemade battery). This second issue includes an ad for the book's sequel, Domestic Amusements, on the lower board. A near-fine copy of a fascinating resource, scarce in original publisher's boards. 18mo, original printed paper boards rebacked, text block uncut. Hand-colored folding engraved frontispiece. Ink ownership inscription to interior of front board, pencil notations to page 81, final fly leaf, and lower board. Early reinforcement to hinge of folding frontispiece; tear to pages 183-184, not affecting text.

WITH A BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF HIS LIFE. [Removed from:] Hillard, Isaac: A WONDERFUL AND HORRIBLE THING IS COMMITTED IN THE LAND...

      [Hamilton, Oh, 1822. Contemporary half leather and paper boards. Boards quite edgeworn and soiled. Contemporary ownership signatures of members of the Van Cleve family on front free endpapers, bookplate on rear pastedown. Toned, scattered foxing. Good. An interesting creation in which an early owner has removed Jesse Denson's THE CHRONICLES OF ANDREW from the 1822 Hamilton, Ohio edition of Isaac Hillard's A WONDERFUL AND HORRIBLE THING IS COMMITTED IN THE LAND... and bound it as a separate, discreet title. Denson's highly approving assessment of Andrew Jackson's conduct in the War of 1812 and against the Creek Indians was first published in Lexington, Kentucky and Milledgeville, Georgia in 1815. In that sense it is the third edition of the text. It was then included as the concluding section of the 1822 edition of Hillard's book, which was first published (without the Denson portion) in Poughkeepsie in 1814. Denson's text is a mixture of prose and poetry, written in a highly religious style, thereby lending Andrew Jackson godlike qualities.

        Enumeratio Plantarum Horti Regii Botanici Berolinensis

      Berolini (Berlin): G. Reimer, 1821-, 1822. Some foxing, very good condition.. Two volumes, octavo, untrimmed and largely unopened, modern marbled wrappers. Greatly revised and expanded second edition of the plants of the Berlin Botanic Garden. The work was first issued in 1809 by Willdenow, but his death in 1812, and the tremendous influx of exotic plants after 1815 meant that a revised edition was a priority.The work was prepared by Johann Heinrich Friedrich Link (1767-1851), a botanist who had been taught by the great Göttingen scientist Blumenbach, and who worked across Europe before his appointment to Berlin in 1815. Link took it upon himself to greatly expand the Berlin gardens, adding thousands of new specimens and publishing widely. A study of the book shows that Link was well-positioned to take over from Willdenow, and it is possible to map a steady and impressive influx of exotics into Berlin: the two varieties of banksias present in 1809, for example, had by the time of Link's catalogue become an impressive eleven.

        Memoria que para ajudar em seus trabalhos a respeitavel Commissão do Commercio da capital offerece á mesma .

      Lisbon, Na Typographia Rollandiana, 1822. - 4°, later (nineteenth-century?) plain beige wrappers. Typographical ornament on title page. Typographical headpiece on p. 5. In fine condition. 41 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Almeida undertakes to answer the questions posed by the Comissão para o Melhoramento do Commercio de Lisboa: What hindrances exist to Portuguese commerce? How can they be removed? How can commerce be helped to thrive? He discusses what the government's priorities should be with respect to commerce, what constitutes the wealth of a nation, the necessity of government protection for persons and property, and balance of trade. He argues for fewer imports of "Fazendas Indianas" from Asia (p. 26) and cites many specific decrees of the second half of the eighteenth century that are causing problems for commerce. A note on p. 3 states that this work was published by the members of the Commissão para o Melhoramento do Commercio de Lisboa at the request of its author, for distribution to members of the Commissão and the Cortês. Extra copies were to be sold, with the profit going to the Casa Pia. The work is dated December 16, 1821 (p. 41).The work is organized in sections, with corollaries, scholia, and principles - a system reminiscent of scholastic theology. Laranjo notes that the author's @Compendio, which also appeared in 1822, was organized in the same way.Laranjo states that Almeida's @Compêndio was the first economic compendium written in Portuguese: "O @Compendio é a primeira tentativa, que se fez em Portugal, para reduzir os assuntos económicos a um corpo de doutrinas ." (Laranjo, p. 98). Almeida's theories are based largely on Adam Smith rather than Jean-Baptiste Say; he was also influenced by Sismondi and Herrenschwand, but had a critical attitude to all: "não era falto de erudição, nem de algum mérito crítico o primeiro compêndio de Economia Política que se escreveu em Portugal" (Laranjo, pp. 99-100).Almeida's writings on economics were spurred by the Liberal Revolution of 1820. In February 1821, Deputado João Rodrigues de Brito proposed to the Cortês that chairs for political economics be created in Lisbon, Coimbra, and Porto; that Jean-Baptiste Say's theories should be taught, if no better option could be found; and that anyone outside the universities who wanted to teach economics should be recompensed by the state in proportion to the number of pupils he taught. A month later, the Comissão de Instrução Pública presented a @parecer that mentioned Manuel Almeida, who had proposed that a chair of economics be established in Portalegre (where Almeida lived), and that the works of Say should not be the basis for the course. The Comissão acknowledged that Say was not perhaps the best economist to use in the course, and asked all those who considered themselves knowledgeable enough to teach economics to write a compendium for use in schools, or to translate a work but adapt it to the situation in Portugal.In December 1821, Almeida submitted Part I of his @Compendio to the Cortês, who referred it to the Comissão in January 1822. The Comissão approved it in February 1822 and authorized its printing. It appeared in Lisbon, 1822 under the title @Compendio d'economia politica, redigido depois do convite feito pelas Córtes em sessão de 24 de Março de 1821.Innocêncio notes that in 1822 few works on economics were available in Portuguese, and that this @Memória and the @Compendio were appreciated by Almeida's compatriots: "Estes escriptos, que versavam sobre uma sciencia ainda então pouco cultivada em Portugal, e offereciam certa novidade no modo de a tractar, grangearam por isso a boa acceitação e acolhimento do publico, que soube fazer justiça ás intenções do auctor. Creio que difficilmente se encontrarão hoje exemplares de algum d'elles."P. Manuel de Almeida (1769-1833), a secular presbyter with a degree from the University of Coimbra, was prior at Santa Maria Magdalena in Portalegre.*** Innocêncio V, 349-50.

        Voyage Pittoresque en Sicile.

      Paris Jules Didot -26 1822 - Two volumes. Folio (66 x 50 cm). (1) half-titles, title pages, (2) dedication, 40 pp. 1 map engraved by Orgiazzi, 92 aquatint plates by Franz Hegi, Theodore Henry Fielding, Newton Fielding and others after Forbin, Huber, Vauzelle, Lesamt, Bonington, Copley, Renoux and others, contemporary brown straight-grain morocco gilt, marbled boards; later endpapers, corners slightly bumped, edges untrimmed, moderate rubbing to joints. Rare views of Sicily: a beautiful example, with wide margins, of the first edition of one of the most lavish of all aquatint books illustrated by the foremost Swiss and British aquatint artists of the day, including the two Fieldings, after original studies by some of the leading European artists. One of a very small number of aquatint books depicting Italian scenery, which shows Palermo (12 plates), Monreale (2), Segesta (4), Agrigento (16), Syracuse (16), Catania (5), Taormina (4), Messina (5), and several other towns, as well as temples, ruins, and views of Mt Etna. D'Ostervald, the editor, originally intended to issue Voyage pittoresque en Sicile in between 27 and 32 parts, but as he states in the 'Avis de l'Editeur', he resisted this desire and limited the work to 24 parts, in order not to over-extend it, nor weary his subscribers. The remarkable plates are, as Abbey records, in large part the work of English engravers, whose reputation was very high at the time in France and who were responsible for 43 of the 92 plates. As d'Ostervald notes in the 'Avis', 'j'ai attire successivement a Paris une douzaine de graveurs d'aqua-tint les plus habiles de l'Angleterre et de la Suisse'. The author (born in Paris in 1771, dying c. 1840) was imprisoned for a time in 1792 as a royalist suspect. He married in 1794 and was attached to the Foreign Ministry, dealing with affairs relating to England. Only 500 copies were produced, some coloured, some on india paper, but the survival rate of copies has been poor and the work is rarely offered for sale.

        Nouvelle-Hollande. Vue De La Riviere Waragamba, Dans Les Montagnes-Bleues, Au Port-Jackson

      Paris 1822 - Engraving, 190 x 270 mm. Early view of Warragamba River in the lower Blue Mountains, the site of Sydney's ever important Warragamba Dam from the official published account of the major French voyage of 1817-1820 to Australia and the Pacific commanded by Louis de Freycinet.The French took considerable interest in the penal colony at Port Jackson, and Freycinet was astounded by the growth of the settlement and the quality of the architecture he encountered, having previously visited Sydney Cove as an officer on the Baudin voyage of 1800-1804. This fine view reflects the curiosity of the French visitors who enjoyed warm hospitality now that Britain and France were at peace and could inspect the settlement unhindered.
